People often ask me: ”Gina, what does Klout count when they compute my Klout score?”
Great question. I help a lot of clients with this issue when I work with them to improve their Klout
scores and social scores.
Here are the networks that Klout actually counts at this time when computing your Klout score.
Twitter – RT’s and replies to you count more than simple broadcast tweets from you.
Facebook – Your Personal Profile counts but not your Facebook Page and not groups.
******** Update: As of July 2011, Klout DOES count your Facebook Page OR your Personal Profile, not both.
Linkedin – posts and public group activity counts. Linkedin counts but not as much as the others.
Google+ - Public posts count – comments, reshares, +1
Foursquare - Todo’s and Tips – Done
The exact formula is unknown as their algorithm is proprietary.
Although Klout allows you to connect other social networks, they aren’t tabulated as part of the score yet.
