Over the past six weeks, we’ve spoken to some of the top social media users from around the world to find out what lessons they’ve learnt online.
Each week we asked our guests to suggest three names that we could add to our Social Situation ‘must follow’ list.
So, with season one all wrapped up we’ve culminated our guests’ suggestions to create one super-list:
