Klout was once one of my daily check-ins, seeing who gave out +K, announcing on Twitter who I give it to, seeing if my topics changed - or what crazy subject they might have given me this week. (I mean, Edmonton Oilers, seriously? Really? I'm from Chicago..)
I have recently, in the past few months, seen a couple open letters to Klout about not having a score or just in question of the true validity of what they are recording and the information that they are presenting.
I wasn't really paying all that much attention to my score since then, based on these letters from people who I trusted and I'm glad because here's what happened to mine in the course of a couple days...
- KLOUT SCORE: Previously, my score had been closer to 60 than 50, that being before the "change" in algorithms or whatever it was they changed but it went from 51 here down to 43 - then back up...
- AMPLIFICATION: Apparently completely unrelated, or just intentionally meant to drive one to the brink of insanity, my Amplification which was holding pretty steady at about 13-15 suddenly made an all time high of what - 32? and then right back down...hm. Also unrelated, my Network also went UP that same day.
I don't really even have an opinion about this - although I'm sure I would have if it had still been one of my daily check-ins. (I haven't checked my score since..) I also know everyone is in a different relationship with Klout so I am really curious what you all have to say..
So here's my questions:
Do you have a Klout story or are you still giving +K? When was the last time you checked your score?
Are they just testing to see who is active at this point?
What do you think?
