Columnist Savage is the social media news king of Seattle

Geekwire.com
That’s one of the findings of former Seattle Weekly managing editor Chuck Taylor’s Newsdex Seattle — “a daily measurement of the social networks of metro-Seattle news outlets and other media, and their employees.” Sex columnist and The Stranger editorial director Dan Savage doesn’t tweet, but he has nearly nearly 90,000 fans on Facebook. || Read Taylor’s email about Newsdex Seattle after the jump.


Friends, colleagues, kinfolk and vague acquaintances,

I’m working on something you might find of interest. My friend, former colleague and neighbor Gary Love has lent his coding expertise to my sputtering hobby website, Newsdex Seattle. It is now a daily measurement of the social networks of metro-Seattle news outlets and other media, and their employees.

We even include Dan Savage and Jenni Hogan! I repeat: We even include Dan Savage and Jenni Hogan!
