1 Critique of Klout 9  Unresolved privacy issues  Possible exposure of identifies of minors  Holes in measurement methods  Not all networks are analyzed  New algorithm created new controversies  Benefits accrue to the firm, not to the person  Your score is their product. You are not their client.

2 Critique of Klout 10  Klout score is not the same as Google Page Rank  You may have a Klout score and not know it  Klout score may just flat out be wrong  Inconsistencies in analysis of social networks  Spam accounts get counted  Your clients may be confused and possibly unhappy if they don’t like their score

1 ~ How to have a high quality Twitter feed that builds a brand 11  Stay interesting  Be smart, opinionated, and entertaining. No one cares what you had for lunch  Be focused  Love cars or passionate about food, then tweet on what you know. Develop a specialty. Don’t tweet off-topic  Find your own pace  A few tweets every day makes sense  Don’t flood the channel with chatter

2 ~ How to have a high quality Twitter feed that builds a brand 12  Don’t use automated tools to tweet  People follow other people on Twitter, not bots  Clean out spammers from followers  Mingle  Share interesting stuff from others, re-tweet!  Spread the word  Put your tweets on your web site, Facebook page, and blog.  Use mobile twitter tools for real time updates

Brand v. Klout 13  Klout wants to be the de facto definer of online influence  Unlikely due to dominance of search engines which don’t index Twitter  Coming divergence between Google+ and Facebook – different platforms with different uses  Where you seek influence depends on what you’re selling

The social media world doesn’t begin or end with Twitter Use Twitter wisely Twitter in 1902 14  Lets the world know you exist  Drive users to rich content  Build awareness of products, services, and brand value  Still better than a telegram
