Klout, believed to be the most popular influence measurer of your social activities on the web has got a new addition in its network. Its the brand new Google+. Yes the Klout team now has officially added Google+ which will make your Klout scores boom even higher.
Klout announced in their official blog post,
Our mission here at Klout is to help you understand and leverage your influence. As we add more networks we can more accurately measure your influence. Today, we are excited to announce that Google+ is now a part of the Klout Score!
I was very much excited for Google+ becoming a part of Klout and i had already connected my Google+ account back in September itself. But Google+ was not officially integrated into Klout. But since its integration with Klout i have seen a major increase in my Klout score.
My Klout score previously was at 43 and now it is 55. Check it out yourself at my official Klout profile. I have now earned the Specialist rank and it feels good. You can also boast if you have achieved higher Klout scores since the addition of Google+ by sharing it on your social networks. Higher Klout scores means higher influence level and higher influence level means people are definitely gonna wanna notice you.
Even if you don’t connect your Google+ profile with Klout, you will not be penalized for not doing so, as the Klout team said. Similarly people will not see a drop in their Klout score if they have connected their Google+ account but their activity on the social network is 0. You will always see a score bump as and when you connect more networks. Unless you are a fraud there’s no reason for you to worry if you experience a drop in your Klout score.
So if you haven’t yet connected Google+ to your Klout profile, its time to do so! Because i have seen a bump in my Klout score, have you?
