Klout is an American based company that provides social media analytics. Sounds a bit dull but what it means in practice is that they can tell you your influence on your social networks. Klout will analysis your influence and give you a score between 1 and 100 based on how influential you are. This is apparently based on ‘your ability to drive action’ – not sure what this means but we think it means getting people to engage with the content you create. Klout isn’t for everyone but if you’re using social networks to promote yourself or your business or you want to see what impact your views are having in the wider world then you may want to know what Klout you have!
