Adding Klout to Your Ning Network

Social Engagement can be measured!
What Klout Scores Measure
 Klout measures influence based on the ability to drive action, not potentially misleading metrics like follower or friend count. Klout has analyzed over 85 million people on major social networks, and is used by over 3000 brands and applications.  Over on the far right you will see and example of an embedded Klout Score Badge for my profile.  I will explain a bit about what Klout is and then give you the simple code needed for adding your Klout score to your Ning Network.

 

HTML Code for Adding Klout Score Badge

You can add/embed  your Klout Score badge into any page on your network by copying and pasting the following code into your HTML Text box:

<iframe src="http://widgets.klout.com/badge/your-twitter-id"
 style="border:0;" scrolling="no" allowTransparency="true"
 frameBorder="0" width="160px" height="110px"></iframe>

*Be sure to replace your-twitter-id with your own.

What is Klout and How Does it Work?

Your Klout Score measures influence based on your demonstrated ability to drive action. Every time you create social content or engage other's content you influence others. The Klout Score uses data from social networks in order to measure:


True Reach: How many people you influence
Amplification: How much you influence them
Network Impact: The influence of your network

So First, What is Klout and Why do you Care?

Klout col­lects data about your social media habits from:
Face­book
Twit­ter
Google +
LinkedIn
FourSquare
Wikipedia
Klout (from +K’s received from friends and followers)

You can read much more about Klout and how it effects brands and measures influence here.



Your Network indicates the influence of the people in your True Reach. How often do top Influencers share and respond to your content? When they do so, they are increasing your Network score.




Your Amplification is how much you influence people. When you post a message, how many people respond to it or spread it further? If people often act upon your content you have a high Amplification score.




Your True Reach is the number of people you influence. We filter out spam and bots and focus on the people who are acting on your content. When you post a message, these people tend to respond or share it.

Second, How we can Help Each Other!

After you have gone to Klout and plugged in your social profiles, come back here to this discussion and drop a link to your Klout Profile Page.  Mine is here as http://klout.com/#/user/epalmetto   By connecting with one another as community builders we can help each other become influential as social media managers.  All we have to do is give each other Klout by clicking on the Klout button beside each other's names while viewing the topics we influence the world, due to our own respective passions.



Klout Perks Incentivize!

A little bit about Klout Perks

Klout Perks for engagement
As your Klout builds higher and higher, you have a chance to win prizes like cars and phones and trips, which have been offered by big brands as incentives for building Klout.  You can see what Perks are all about here.


SIMPLE STEPS TO HELP EACH OTHER BUILD KLOUT

Klout Influence for Community Managers

1) Go to Ning's Klout Page and Invite them to your circle-let's bring their Klout up!

2) Go to My Klout Page and Invite me to your Circle...then and most importantly, go to the New List that i've started for Ning Creators Here

 As you can see, i'm only a couple of Klout Points behind ALL OF NING so connecting with me will bring your influence up. I promise to make an effort to retweet your content as long as you do the same.   However you must make a conscious effort to share and retweet content sent out by each other to continue to build measurable Klout.
