Klout is a website (and mobile app!) that measures your influence score on social media through social media analytics. Your social media influence is based on a number varying from 1 – 100. To give you an example: president Obama has a Klout score of 99.
Social media platforms that are linked to Klout to measure your influence, are: Twitter, Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn, Foursquare, Wikipedia and Instagram. Also YouTube, Flickr, Blogger, Tumblr, Last.fm, WordPress and Bing can be added to your Klout account, but these accounts don’t influence your Klout score.
The fun part about Klout is that you get rewarded for being influential on social media. Based on your Klout score, geographic location and interests, you’ll receive Perks. Perks give you free products or services by brands trying to promote their products/services to social media influencers.
Klout sounds really interesting, and it is! Now there’s also Klout For Business, so no more excuses to stay away from Klout whether you’re an individual or business!
