“Klout” on the internet

There is a pretty neat project called “Klout” which attempts to track your internet “muscle” via Facebook, Twitter, G+, and Linked In with a few of the smaller sites that you can link to but aren’t being tracked yet. You can trade influence with friends or people you find interesting about specific topics which is an interesting touch since it encourages you to come back to the site. I didn’t know that my posts reached over a thousand people through my friends which is really cool. Klout gives you a breakdown of your score and allows you to spend Klout points on topics and will calculate a topic for you if you have enough influence in that category. The only caveat towards having a fully calculated score is that some posts won’t be figured in if they aren’t public.


Here’s my profile so feel free to give me some K+ points:D

  1. Klout was pretty cool, but it has become really corporate over the last month. Before, your Klout score only influenced what you had signed up for on Klout. Now, however, you are deducted points for not logging in with different social mediums. Kind of a bummer if you only want to see your influence, for instance, on just Twitter.

  2. Hey! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an
    established blog. Is it hard to set up your own blog?
    I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I’m thinking
    about setting up my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any points or suggestions? Many thanks

      WordPress is really easy to setup. Their are some excellent tutorials at WordPress.com. Pick a template you like and most everything is done for you. Microsoft essentials has some good tools you can download for free from their website that does a lot for you as well.
