This year saw more nominations than ever before – close to 250,000 – and over 8,000 individual blogs were nominated across all award categories. We’d like to take a moment to thank everyone who took part – as a blogger, or a nominee – those few moments you take to share the blogs you love mean the world to bloggers (and to us).

Congratulations to everyone who was nominated, and a very special well done to the 2016 MAD Blog Awards finalists. Please, please check out their blogs – we can assure you they are ALL utterly brilliant.

So You Know...

As you've likely heard and seen, there's an increasing focus on the authenticity of follower growth and engagement on social platforms across the Influencer Marketing community. The platforms themselves have taken measures to deter inauthentic activity and brands now more closely scrutinise the audiences of the influencers with whom they are partnering.

The Flea Network has implemented a system that will detect abnormal spikes in following and engagement, and flag these properties. Of course, such spikes can often be attributed to viral posts or high-profile brands that bring greater exposure to some content.

If one of your social accounts is flagged by our system without an obvious reason, we may reach out to you for assistance in understanding it. If we find any influencer has artificially inflated their audience size or engagement using paid acquisition or automated, third-party tools, we will remove them permanently from our influencer community.

Feel free to reach out to us at bloggers@fleaenterprises.com with any questions or comments.

Thank you!

The Flea Network Team

Got it!
