Most people immediately reference the Klout Score, our 1-100 rating of a person’s overall influence online, when they think about Klout. As a single number, the Klout Score is useful in making quick judgments and ranking overall influence.
But users are more than a single number, and Klout’s more than just a score. That’s why we’re excited to launch our Topic Pages beta to a wider preview audience today.
Klout’s Topic Pages aim to provide more context about a topic: we present top influencers in a given topic, regardless of their overall Klout score. Pages showcase topical content that recently influenced others, surface top +K recipients, and that’s just the beginning — we plan to add further analytics, trends, and related content over the coming months.
The preview is now open to all users who opted into the Topic Page perk last month. Check back soon if you’re still waiting — we’re letting more people in every day. (And a tweet can’t hurt your chances).
We’ve received positive reactions from select users who previewed Topic pages earlier, and we’re excited to expand that group now. Please leave your feedback and what else you’d like to see in the comments below!
Q: How do I browse topic pages? How do I know I have access?
You’ll receive a notification when you’re added to the preview. Topic pages can be accessed by clicking through any topic link on the site, such as from someone’s topic page. We plan to add more discovery and search options in the future.
Q: How do you determine top influencers and content for a topic?
Top influencers are determined based on interactions and engagement from other topical influencers on content relating to a specific topic. Likewise, we curate topical content based on the engaging influencers, and their interaction with the topical content.
Q: Who can see topic pages?
Topic pages are open to users who opted into the Topic page preview perk last month. We’ll continue to let more users into the preview over the next few weeks.
