We love hearing the multitude of ways people use Klout. For some it’s a way to measure their personal progress on Twitter and see when their influence is increasing or decreasing and adjust accordingly. Others use it for their business account to understand if they’re using the right methods and reaching the right audience. We’ve even heard of recruiters using a minimum Klout score when evalutating marketing or social media candidates and people putting the Klout Score on their resume.
How do you use Klout? We’d love to hear your stories. We’ll highlight the best ones and send them a sweet Klout t-shirt as a bonus. Put your story in the comments below or tweet with hashtag #Klout and we’ll select our favorites.
Update: Here are a few of our favorites (if one of these is yours, you should have an email from us shortly about your free t-shirt)
