What Are Your Klout Moments?
Have you checked out your Klout account lately? They had made changes about a week or so ago with everyone’s scores and yesterday released Klout Moments.
It appears Klout takes your most liked posts from Facebook or the most commented ones and put them in your moments. I noticed there were no tweets there in Klout Moments. Tweets were under Social Interactions along with more Facebook posts. The biggest surprise for me was that Facebook accounted for 45.96% of my score and Twitter only 45.35%. I really thought Twitter would have been higher for me. LinkedIn, Klout and Google+ accounted for the rest. I was also surprised FourSquare and Instagram did not account for anything.
Klout has changed their algorithm several times and there are those that live by the scores and those that think it’s a farce. I have heard of some people getting jobs because of their Klout scores but mostly work in PR or social media. I personally like the perks that come with Klout. It’s fun to get prizes in the mail like cosmetics, tee-shirts and gift cards for lunches. Some perks are awarded at a score of 40, others need 50, 60 or above. Some Klout users need to have special topics as their Klout to get certain perks. There was one for a healthy drink called Re-Invent and because of my topics I did not qualify
They even categorize the perks now by topics like:
- Food and beverage
- Charity called Klout for Good
