this kind of knowledge graph for cnn (or Hugo Boss) is nothings you can enforce to get shown.
It will likely happen if your business is as much relevant as cnn or Hugo Boss are worldwide known.
Best chance could be having a wikipedia article of very hight access and relevance.

Hi Lonnie,

You can add markup to your website that will tell Google what social profiles are yours. 

 

Read here:

No guarantees they will get picked up in the Knowledge Graph as @Helmut Geissler points out, but it will give you a chance.

Ben,
Do you know if there is a solution in the structure markup to re-arrange the order of reviews in the knowledge panel? I see the developer schema.org code for including it in the page listing, but nothing further.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

Hi Caltex,
Not to my knowledge. You can try and order them and see what happens :)

Hope this was of help and answered your question.

@CalTex There is no way to control the arrangement of the reviews in the knowledge graph.
