For those of you still trying to figure out Klout and if it has any importance, it’s basically a service that measures how influential you are in social media. Do you interact with your followers and friends and if so, how much? And for those of you still trying to figure out if Klout matters, let’s just say it matters to brands.
Once you sync your YouTube account with Klout, it will then analyze your subscriber count, comments, likes and engagement to add to your final Klout score.
Like I said, Klout is on a roll. They most recently added Foursquare check-ins and LinkedIn. What about Google+? The answer is yes, they will add it, as soon as Google released their API.
Klout said in a recent blog post, “We’ve already started work on ways to assess your influence on Google+, but we need Google to provide us with a system to access and identify your data. We’ve heard an API for Google+ is coming soon and we’ll be ready when it launches.”
Have you synced your YouTube account with Klout yet? I’m headed there right now. We’ll see if it makes a difference in my score.
