Social Media – Klout
Klout is a web-based service that measures the influence of social media users. Until now, the Klout Score was based on your influence on Twitter and Facebook.
Klout’s Ranking Director, Ash Rust, announced on their official blog on June 14, 2011 that now you can add LinkedIn to Klout, and your influence on the network will also be added to your score. Now that LinkedIn has over 100 million users, this is a way to make Klout scores more accurate.
As the world’s largest professional network with over 100 million members, LinkedIn is a key destination for doing business across the globe and is integrated into the fabric of the social web. Today we’re excited to launch one of our most requested features: Klout scoring for LinkedIn. Once you add LinkedIn to Klout, you’ll notice a LinkedIn logo will appear on your profile and your influence on the network will be added to your score.
