I was intrigued by the news that Klout, a startup that helps people measure how influential they are across a variety of social media sites, announced today that it has scored $8.5 million in a round of funding led by Kleiner Perkins.
And I thought why I don’t come up with such ideas, ever?
Anyways, I ran a search to find out the social media influence of multiple twitter users and this is what I found
|Twitter Name||klout Score||Category|
|Consumertrend That is me||10||Explorer|
The interesting part is Most individuals have scored more than the organizations/corporate tweets. Etisalat and Du have scored almost the same but have different positioning in terms of category.
Definitions of the categories:
Explorer: You actively engage in the social web, constantly trying out new ways to interact and network. You’re exploring the ecosystem and making it work for you. Your level of activity and engagement shows that you “get it”, we predict you’ll be moving up.
Thought Leader: You are a thought leader in your industry. Your followers rely on you, not only to share the relevant news, but to give your opinion on the issues. People look to you to help them understand the day’s developments. You understand what’s important and what your audience values.
Specialist: You may not be a celebrity, but within your area of expertise your opinion is second to none. Your content is likely focused around a specific topic or industry with a focused, highly-engaged audience
