Is Klout Finally Going To Explain How They Rank Our “Social Media Influence”?
6:28 pm, January 2nd | by Hillary Reinsberg
If you’re an entrepreneur or business world mover and shaker, chances are you care about your so-called social media influence. You tweet, you post Facebook, and if you’re really hardcore, you’re concerned with your score on Klout, the mysterious but addictive “social media influence ranker.” The only problem with Klout is that no one knows how it works. But that may change.
The company tells The New York Post that in next few months, they’ll begin sharing more information about how their service actually works. Will this ruin the whole thing?
The whole mystique of Klout is that no one exactly knows what makes your score higher or lower. We know it’s roughly something related to how much you get retweeted and how many people follow you and how important those people are, and so on. Will spilling the beans make it less fun then?
