I wrote previously about Klout to explain what it is, how it’s measured and how you can keep track of how influential you are with your online audience. Klout is also now processed daily, so you can check your score everyday if you want to. There has also been an improvement on the way your score is measured. Take a look at the original “ I Have Klout, Do You? ” post for a better understanding.
I’ve gotten into the habit of measuring my Klout om a daily basis and I’ve moved up in the ranks, can you believe it? My Klout score is now a 61. I was at 36 when I last posted so, I’ve been real SOCIAL! I am now considered a Curator: (meaning) I highlight the most interesting people and find the best content on the web and share it with a wide audience. I am a critical information source to my network. I have an amazing ability to filter massive amounts of content to surface the nuggets that my audience truly cares about. My hard work is much appreciated.
Overview via Klout: The Klout Score is the measurement of your overall online influence. The scores range from 1-100 with higher scores representing a wider and stronger sphere of influence.
The Klout Score is a factor of over 35 variables broken into three categories; True Reach, Amplification Score and Network Score.
True Reach is the size of your engaged audience and is based on the followers and friends who actively listen and react to your messages. Amplification Score is the likelihood that your messages will generate actions (retweets, @messages, likes and comments) and is on a scale of 1 to 100. Network score indicates how influential your engaged audience is, also on a scale of 1 to 100. The Klout score is highly correlated to clicks, comments and retweets.
