Hi guys,

Having recently listened to a Pat Flynn podcast where he interviewed Joel Comm, they discussed the importance of "Klout", as a measure of social influence?

Do you pay much attention to your klout score? What is it? What do you use it for?

I pay attention only if they are offering to send me stuff. . .

Same here! I only check it when I get an email with an offer. But for the most part, I find it to be somewhat accurate given the amount I use social media.

There are so many sources screaming for our attention, I find, I have to be a bit focused on what I attend to . I'll respond to a klout email on occasion and tweet out my score. In general, I focus on twitter, g+, pinterest, and linkedin for social media marketing

Klout used to be worth looking at on occasion, but most people don't really care about it anymore other than for the free giveaways they do.

Like most here, I only pay attention to Klout when they send me perks. Other than that, I don't do much to intentionally raise the score. I figure, if I am interacting through various social media, my score should go up anyway, but I don't interact with the purpose of increasing the score…that's just a bonus (I guess).

If I tried to keep up on all social media-type tools I'd have no time to write blog posts. Somehow I think that wouldn't work out. Smile I dabbled in Klout for a while, but now I rarely pay attention to it. Just feel like I have to draw the line somewhere, and so far Klout's on the 'mostly ignore' side of the line for me.

I thought (think) that Klout is one of those things that looks after itself. Then again, I think that about most social media aside from LinkedIn and G+.

I feel like it's a nice-to-have, but really doesn't do much for me. If I had a 60, then it might mean something, at least bragging rights.

The only time I realize they exist is when I get an email from them…

Thanks for the replies everyone. It seems that its primarily for possibly getting freebies and secondly for bragging rights… I'll probably not be "working" on that then. Thanks all.
