My New Favorite Thing: Klout
Klout is so cool. And so empowering too. For those of you who aren't aware, the beta service Klout is able to rank your outreach on the internet. What I mean by this is, it ranks your online social influence. My current Klout score is 52. But how does the service calculate this number? Well, they take the number of people you influence plus how much you influence them plus how influential they themselves are. This score is usually taken from Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, LinkedIn, and so many other services. Klout also gets you noticed by other influential people who will then connect with you so that they can influence you and you in turn can influence them. Audiences are shared, and more people are more connected in an ever-connecting society. But it gets better. Klout also gives you freebies, or as it calls them, perks. Perks allow you to receive awesome free stuff based on how much activity you produce on Klout. The more the better. For more information follow THIS link.
