Klout – creating a standard for social Influence

If you haven’t checked out Klout.com yet – do it now. Still in beta, this new platform will measure your influence across the social web (ok, just with Twitter and Facebook right now but more coming) and provide you with a score between 1-100. (Lady Gaga was the only one I saw with a 100 score at the time of writing this.) The platform also provides information on the number of people and brands you influence, as well as provides information on your “style” – the way you interact with content.

It’s still quite new but I think this could be a very interesting platform – if you are using HootSuite they have already integrated Klout Scores into the platform when viewing your twitter followers. Anyhow, I invite you all to check it out – pretty cool!


*O and I almost forgot – take a peek at the Klout Perks section on the site… this looks like it will be interesting!

    Justin Bieber has the 100 score now… Gaga is down to 92. Oh how mighty heroes have fallen 🙂 Looking forward to seeing what Klout develops into.
