I guess my main site might be considered a Panda winner, but it is hard to say exactly because there were so many Panda losers that dropped 50% or more OVERNIGHT, and our site's gains have been gradual (over the three months since Panda 1).
So even though we have seen about an 18% gain over the last three months, it would be hard to determine specifically if it is Panda related. It might have more to do with link building efforts on my part, and also with the fact that I had redirected a lot of material from one site to another site via 301s PRIOR to Panda, and google is just now "trusting" those 301 redirects and sending more traffic to them than when they were on the original site.
It might have something to do with taking a few under performing pages with a lot of content on them and splitting them off into multiple shorter pages so they were more focused.
I can tell you that our gains DON'T have anything to do with social media, which is something I am COMPLETELY inept at it. Seriously, there are octogenarians out there who would easily blow my social media presence out of the water...
