Measuring Your Online Influence

Do you know what your Klout score is?  Are you curious about how much online influence you have?

I have been working with the most popular social networks for many years. I have over 1200 contacts across Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter.  I consider myself somewhat of an expert on social media and technology, but I was curious how I stacked up against my peers.

Klout is a social scoring system designed to track a person’s activity on social media sites to find out how influential they are.

The analysis is executed using data taken from sites such as Twitter and LinkedIn (Facebook is coming soon), and measures the size of a person’s network, the content created and how other people interact with that content.

Those who sign up for Klout or are connected to those who do are each given a “Klout score” that ranges from one to 100, with higher scores corresponding to a greater strength of their online influence.

Your Klout score analysis consists of few major criteria:

• Network Influence - How influential people are
• Amplification Probability - How much you influence people
• True Reach - How many people you influence

Klout happens to one of the more popular sites, but there are many others including Kred, Peer Index, EmpireAvenue and more.

So if you are curious like me, then try one of these sites to see what your score is.
