Abstract
The social network in which individuals are enmeshed influence their opinion formation and therefore their political choices. For this reason it has been a classic theme of research in sociology and political science. Here we identify opinion leaders in an online social network and observe that their impact on users changes in function of the social interaction considered. To that effect we can understand the online social network as a multi-layer network, where at each layer a different interaction takes place. We observe that different opinion leaders emerge at each level highlighting the need to consider all the different interactions when studying such social networks.
