So I have known about Klout for some time, but haven’t gotten round to using it until now. If you are big on social media I strongly suggest you begin using Klout, not only do some employers now look at your klout score (for relevant jobs of course) but it also helps you personally track how much engagement your posts are getting.
Klout is a site that uses social media analytics to rank it’s users based on their social media influence. When you first go on to the site or app you can add your social media accounts (Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr etc.) klout will then spend up to 72 hours collecting data from the websites and give you a rank between 0 and 100 (100 meaning you have more of a social media influence). As it was originally set up to work exclusively with Twitter you can also send and schedule tweets from Klout.
The tagline for the website is “Be Known For What You Love”. As an “Influencer” you can pick many topics that interest you, however Klout will pick up on the things you talk about the most and allow you to add topics as an expertise. e.g. Klout saw that I talked a lot about film so allowed me to become a Film Expert.
As a social media enthusiast Klout excites me quite a bit and I really do recommend it to you. One of my favourite things about it is the way Klout gathers up relevant articles from the web and fits in to categories so you can find and share more relevant content to your interests.
