Klout Influencers Options Have Changed

2013-10-11_2257

Once upon a time, before the Klout platform make over, you could easily switch around your influencers. Whomever you considered to be influential or your friends (who can be extremely influential to you anyway), you would place on your list. You would put up 10 of those who you called your “influencers” and those with the highest scores would show up on your profile page. That happened in the old days.

Now, things are a little different. Currently on the public profile, you can choose to either display a public list that you’ve created, or default to the “recent moments interactors”, which populates automatically based off of Klout’s algorithm, which displays users that interact most with your updates on your social media platforms. In order to learn more about how this works, it is all explained in the video below. However, Klout is going to keep updating, tweaking, and testing things out. I will keep you updated as it happens!

    Thanks for the info. Klout is definitely evolving. Very interesting to take part.

    I had wondered where it was headed, Miriam, when I noticed I couldn’t change them any more. Guess it makes sense that you either name on a list those you want, and it populates in order of Klout score, or it defaults to show you those who interacted with you the most …

      Yes Sharon it does, it’s been evolving so fast who knows when the next thing will come!

    Nice video tutorial Miriam. I didn’t realize you had a YouTube channel; I’m subscribed now. 🙂 Truthfully, I didn’t even know we were allowed to pick our influencers before. I’m frustrated with Klout right now. I made it to 79 and then Klout showed a popup telling me to activate my Facebook biz page and now I’m still down to 70 almost two months after I put my personal FB profile back in.

      Thanks Brian and sorry to hear that, putting up your biz page was optional, and sorry this happened. I hope it picks up soon.

    I haven’t been on Klout in a while but this is good tonight because I have been recently reminding myself to reconnect the Klout platform to my social media. Thanks for sharing

    I have a Klout account. I have for quite awhile. But i have yet to figure out the benefits to having a high Klout score. I’d love to figure out it’s actual benefit.

    Good information! Thanks for keeping us in the loop of the Klout updates.

    Now it seems the feature doesn’t exist anymore unfortunately ! :/

      They did get rid of it after the change however I can see them bringing it back at some point.
