    Re: what is the difference ?

    As a noun:

    Influence = the power or ability to affect someone’s beliefs or actions, or to produce a physical change.
    Effect = a change which is a result or consequence of an action or other cause

    As a verb:

    Influence = have an influence on, affect someone/something
    Effect = cause to happen; bring about.
