Klout is a new phenomena in Social Media measurement. Your “Influence” as a contributor is measured and shared across the network of those in the know- do you know your score?
How do they determine your worth? According to Wiki:
“Klout is a San Francisco based company that provides social media analytics that measures a users influence across their social network. The analysis is done on data collected from sites such as Twitter and Facebook and measures the size of a person’s network, the content created, and how other people interact with that content.”
“Klout measures influence by using data points from Twitter, such as: following count, follower count, retweets, list memberships, how many spam/dead accounts are following you, how influential the people that retweet you are, and unique mentions. This information is blended with Facebook data such as comment, likes, and the number of friends in your network to come up with a “Klout Score” that measures a user’s online influence.”
I am all for improving communication globally so identifying who excels where is a passion of mine. Klout allows you to give credit called “+K” daily to 5 people who have influenced you. Here is how you can start:
1) Sign into Klout;
2) Click on “Influencers” on the left of the page;
3) Type in the Twitter handle of the person you want to recognize in the search bar;
4) Click on the “+K” category you’d like to give them credit as influencing you.
I plan to support my network daily through recognizing them here- are you determined to boost those who motivate and inspire you in this same way?
