Today we take a big step forward in our goal to measure influence wherever it happens. We’re adding five new networks: Blogger, Tumblr, Flickr, Instagram and Last.fm, allowing you to connect up to 10 networks with Klout.
Measuring influence wherever it happens means we have to go beyond a status update:
One of our most requested features is blog integration, so we’re excited to be adding both the largest blogging platform in Blogger and one of the fastest growing in Tumblr.
Online images continue to play a huge role in keeping us connected to family and friends while helping us understand what’s going on anywhere in the World; today we’re adding the Godfather of photo sharing, Flickr and the hugely popular mobile app Instagram.
Finally we’re adding Last.fm, so we can assess the influence you have on your friends’ listening habits and music discovery.
Although we are still in the early stages of understanding influence, today’s launch brings us a lot closer to measuring influence everywhere. You can connect all your accounts today to be one of the first people scored on these new networks. Connecting an account wil never lower your Score, but it may increase it as we can give you credit for your influence in that network. As always, we’d love to hear your feedback.
