Klout Branches Out - Page 2
I assume that Klout has taken all this into account, but if their ranking is going to be meaningful to people they need to have a common understanding of what it means. The "release notes" published on Klout's blog do very little to provide an explanation. Despite the expansions Klout still appears to tightly tied to Twitter and tied to the rest in an unclear way. For now it is a "wait and see" game as I connect the social networks that I play in and watch for a noticable change.
If Klout is going to continue to grow and integrate itself into the common collective's online experience it will need to convince the general public that it is more than a fun party trick. The novelty of connecting your social accounts to an orange box that mysteriously spits out a ranking will wear off quickly.
