9 Influencers On Facebook Who Are More Valuable Than Your Real Friends

Published

on

The people you follow on social media have an effect on your success. If your newsfeed is clogged up with people who: complain, get upset at the government, make funny videos that add no value, and take selfies of themselves all day, your life is going to lack many valuable tools.

When you follow people on social media who’s aim it is to inspire you and give you strategies for success; it’s almost like having lot’s of successful millionaires advising you every day. There are lot’s of real influencers who are changing the game, and there are plenty of fakes as well.

To make your life easy, here are nine influencers on Facebook that are more valuable than your real friends:

1. Preston Smiles

This man has been on the scene for a while, and he is most known for his incredibly inspiring YouTube videos. He is also the founder of an unusually cool organisation called “Love Mob.” Preston and his crazy team go around the world and create random acts of love.

For example, I heard in a podcast interview that Preston and his team went to a public place and got everyone singing the Beatles classic “All you need is love.”

These types of experiments are exactly what our world, and your world need to thrive. Preston is also an author and has been published by Simon & Schuster, so he is definitely making big waves.

2. Peta Kelly

This girl is a pocket rocket full of energy. Her way of being will challenge everything you thought you knew. Her messages are mostly targeted towards millennial entrepreneurs so if you fit into that category then watch out.

What amazes me about this young lady is the way wisdom just flows through her words. Most of what she says is unrehearsed and in the moment. She feeds off the energy of her followers and live audiences, and she will definitely leave you feeling inspired.

Peta’s message is one of hope and through her own success in business she demonstrates that anyone can be an entrepreneur and enjoy freedom. The passion she has just oozes out of her eye sockets, and you’ll learn some great strategies along the way.

3. Lewis Howes

This list wouldn’t be complete without the former athlete turned internet entrepreneur Lewis Howes has a highly engaging Facebook page, and a lot of what he does is to inspire people to start their very own online business.

He is regularly posting videos on how to achieve a goal like this and the content on his page is very different from his School Of Greatness Podcast. Many Facebook pages are about self-promotion, but Lewis’s is very focused on delivering value and sharing his knowledge, which I find rare.

4. Jairek Robbins

This guy is one of my favorite young coaches. He posts regular videos on Facebook with strategies you can use in your life right away. Jaireks Facebook live videos have become one of my favorite, and he also does some interesting interviews with successful people that I don’t always know.

The advice he gives is actionable and straight to the point. He has endless amounts of positivity, and he is a real thought leader.

5. Peter Voogd

I find Peter’s advice on entrepreneurship very insightful. What’s different about Peter is that he has turned the whole concept of a mixtape on its head. Instead of an instrumental with someone rapping on it, Peter speaks words of inspiration to entrepreneurs over the top of inspirational soundtracks and beats.

At first, you may find the idea a bit strange, but once you get into it, it’s an entirely different way of being inspired.

Peter posts lots of his own picture quotes on Facebook to inspire you and his messages are so easy to understand, yet so powerful at the same time.

6. Prince EA

So this guy has just got it going on when it comes to having a very different message to inspire the world. Prince EA first became well known with his famous YouTube videos, and now his Facebook page is something I check out daily.

The whole twist with his work is about changing the models that we have of the world and challenging the brules (BS rules). He uses the spoken word to deliver his insight, and he is someone that will make you see the world and the concept of race differently.

7. Jake Ducey

This spiritual leader is a must have on your Facebook. Jake gives off good vibes, and he is a humble guy in many ways. On a daily basis Jake posts inspiring content that focuses on the soul and has a scientific component to it.

Even if you’re not into the spiritual side of life, Jake has an endless amount of uplifting messages to take you away from what might be going wrong in your day.

He is also a leader in the book publishing space and sold 25,000 books by going door-to-door. You can definitely learn a thing or two from him about hustle and never giving up.

8. Alexi Panos

Another great find on Facebook who you may not have come across yet is Alexi Panos. She makes videos about how to improve yourself and change your thinking. She is high on energy and will share every strategy she knows.

She doesn’t just teach these concepts; she lives them in her own life. Alexi is real, transparent, and angelic like. Whatever she is drinking, I want some! As we transfer out of the information and into the spiritual age, more and more of us are starting to care about the way we are living and how we can help each other.

Greed is no longer good, and transparency is the new currency. Alexi embodies all of those qualities, and she will add some color and spice to your day.

9. Tim Ferriss

Finally, there is no way I could put the words influencer and Facebook in the same sentence without mentioning the Oprah of the podcasting world, Tim Ferriss. His Facebook page will give you the daily life hacks and productivity tips that you are missing, as well as quick tutorials on how you can make a change in your life.

His written posts tend to be quite lengthy, and he is the master of coming up with original ideas that you have never thought of. I also find his page a great way to find out about new technology that is coming to the market.

The one warning I will give you is that his regular Facebook Live videos are addictive. What’s cool is you can even ask Tim a question and have a good chance of him answering it.

    I think the meaning of the title has been used metaphorically in this very case, without any negative sense, describing those 9 influencers how the major example of why you still can use facebook and get lots and lots of valuable information and being in touch with amazing beings! I am well aware of more than half of them and can safely say, I would love to have Preston Smiles as my best body and he’s most definitely better than many people I know in so-called ‘real life’. Oh, and what the difference between real life friends or the internet ones? 🙂 They are all people of the same kind, the same real people behind the screens, who you just not met in person.

    Half of my friends are the ones I’ve never met but speak regularly on the internet and I feel pretty much happy I know them and able to have conversations and share the experience. You don’t have to give up your real friends, just take some time to invite new people into your life.

    Thank you, Tim, for great topic to think of. I am considering to get on FB sooner or later, I see many benefits now and yes, I forgot there are people who well worth following and who knows one day you may actually call them real life friends 😀

    Much love friend, have a wonderful day, speak soon!

      Thanks for your objective view Toño. If you’re not keen on signing up for Facebook you can also find many of the nine influencers on Youtube as well except I find Facebook has their most recent updates.

    I would never give up any of my real friends for any or all of your “influencers”. I can’t help but think that you either don’t have any real friends or you don’t value your friends enough.
