Klout thinks I’m an expert in Carolinas. This is very true. Did you know there are two Carolinas? North Carolina, and a second Carolina! Wow!

Klout also assumed I’m an expert in Elementary Schools which is a fucked up accusation to throw at a single 30-year-old man with no children. Klout, you can’t be like “yo i heard you know about where kids go. also do you want a $5 gift card to McDonald’s every two months.” 1) c’mon dude, be cool and 2) yeah gimme that flippin gift card, I’m going to make it rain McNuggets.

Klout thinks I’m an expert in Marc Broussard and I literally just googled him because I have no idea who he is. Strange that they’d assume I’m an expert in a person I have never heard of, let alone mentioned. Like hey Klout, what if I told you you’re an expert in George de Mestral. And Klout’d google him and be like “what the fuck, I’m an expert in the guy who invented velcro?” and I’m just like yeah, fuck you. You know about the velcro guy now.

Klout thinks I’m an expert in dishwashers which is a low blow because my apartment doesn’t have one and now I’m the dishwasher. So I guess I am an expert on dishwashers. Which… I guess is pretty appropriate.

Well played, Klout.

Karu gets plastic dishes for the strays - thanks Karu. The strays depend on Karu providing daily food for them so many would starve without these regular meals .#klout #koalacore #socialgood s#feedstrays #fundraise #fundrazz #instray #saveourstreetdogs #savethestrays #savestrays #helpraisefundsforstrays #hikkaduwa #srilanka #srilankafreerabies #cause #penrith

Klout is Dead

You are probably wondering why I am saying that Klout is dead considering their site is still up, and there are still scores. The fact of the matter is, due to that they unsuccessfully had been able to award an accurate score to someone truly influential online as well as offline- Klout is meaningless.

I understand that those who still support Klout only do so for the sake of accountability reasons. Sure, if you want to keep a strong social media presence going, you do need to make sure you are sharing good quality content as well as engaging with those in your networks on a consistent basis. In all honesty, you don’t need Klout for that. There are other ways you can make sure you are sharing good content on a regular basis and engaging with those who engage with you. You can set a schedule to share posts, and schedule a time to engage with your networks. If you are consistent, you will keep a strong social media presence.

The fact that Klout had purposely manipulated scores, and that the scores got to people’s heads so much to the point that they did anything they could to game the system shows you that Klout was/is nothing but a game. For instance, I don’t have a problem with tagging people on Facebook. If you want a number of people to see what you have to put out, that is the only way to get their attention. However, many people only excessively tagged for the sake of inflating their scores. That is not even creating a legitimate social media presence.

It was one thing when having a high score meant being eligible to win some perks, which no one can do anymore since the program has been discontinued. At one time if you had a high Klout score, you would be able to get better customer service. Today, no one cares.

I believed at one time Klout did have potential to actually do more than it did such as finding a way to be truly accurate with measuring real influence. That is why I supported it and had even written ebooks, and created courses about the importance of Klout. Don’t get me wrong. I don’t regret supporting Klout when I did. I learned a lot about social media by doing that.

However, you rarely see new articles written today supporting Klout. In fact you rarely see any articles that have been written up about Klout over the last 6 months. This article talking about its demise may be one of the very few you will see about Klout. Hootsuite also recently removed Klout from their system.

Klout had a great concept and it did have the potential to do well. However, it is too late now. I also believe (I am not saying this as a fact, more as a feeling and I may be completely wrong here), former CEO Joe Fernandez left Klout because he saw a sinking ship and wanted to flee before it sank. Perhaps one day there will be a much better system that will use the concept Klout did have without being purposely mysterious with their calculations.

There have been employers in the past who only cared about the candidate’s Klout score instead of experience. In all honesty, I would avoid those employers like the plague and look for employers who are looking for experience and past schooling instead of Klout scores. Klout is no longer important, in fact it’s dead.

Interesante las formulaciones de #klout , después de mantener una meseta constante de 78 durante meses, (manteniendo un comportamiento constante de publicaciones, interacciones, nivel ascendente de seguidores, control del nivel de los seguidores y seguidos, rrss, etc. todo ello gestionado, automatizado y llevándolo en un excel que luego exporto a BBDD para relacionar actividad con puntuación y poder ver gráficas), empieza a aparecer (como podéis ver en la imagen) una política de “rotura” de las mesetas. Como con Klout es muy difícil sacar conclusiones, es mejor llevarlo a posibles escenarios, uno de los más probables es una vuelta de tuerca a la gamificación, es decir, puede que estén parametrizando la constancia y estabilidad, para obligar al usuario a modificar sus políticas previsibles. En los tres casos de descenso que veis, no he modificado mi ritmo, ya que corrompería el estudio, y como veis, he recupero el nivel 78, pero cada vez con una mayor distancia del factor tiempo. En esta última, he perdido todos los “expertos” que llevaba manteniendo, pero no tengo claro que sea a atribuible al tiempo pasado (puede) porque me he fijado que ha otras personas que sigo para este mini estudio les ha pasado sin tener un descenso. Si alguien tiene alguna otra conclusión sería interesante leerla, al fin y al cabo, para mi esto es un estudio de una herramienta de métricas, para comprender su funcionamiento. el tema “para qué sirve Klout” lo dejamos para otro día. ;)
