    1. Well now that is a plan to make cash. I wonder if Empire Avenue thought about something like this? I bet the numbers would be even more impressive.

    2. If these “tools” are as confusing as Klout itself is I’m not sure they have much value beyond smoke and mirrors. And while I’m sure many companies will use them it’s only going to be because there is nothing better out there yet.

      We are very much in the early days in trying to understand and quantitate social media influence and the Klout score is a prime example.

      So while this is a good business move on Klout’s part they have a very long ways to go before they will convince me that their tools are ready for prime time.

      For even the basic Klout score I see as a convoluted confusing mess. And while is some cases a Klout score seems to make sense in other’s it fails totally.

      So even as a Klout user I have little understanding nor faith in how the Klout score I’m given really relates to my reach or influence as compared to other Klout scores. One only has to look at different scores and examine the underlying FaceBook posts, Twitter tweets, and number of followers a person has in his social media universe to see a very inconsistent value to Klout’s score as it applies to different users.

    3. wauw, decadent? Of is het een virtuele opwaardering dat weer enkel is voorbehouden voor mensen dat er te hard voor gaan en zo het echte doel van een facebook vergeten?
