3 Ways to Use Klout Lists

January 26th, 2012 by Kameron Kitajima

Everyone makes lists. Whether it’s to keep track of your daily to-dos or remember what groceries to buy, lists keep us organized and efficient. We even use lists to motivate us to live it up and accomplish our goals before we kick the proverbial bucket. But what about Klout Lists? Klout lists are a great way to discover and interact with people in your influence network. Here are 3 ways Klout lists can help you:

1. Interact with the people you care about. We have lots of connections in the social media space, but sometimes you just want to check up on your closest friends. Are you looking to connect with your old college buddies? You might create a list called “UC Berkeley” so you can easily filter your 10 friends you spent those late nights studying in the stacks with to give them +K in “Berkeley” during the Big Game (Go Bears!).

2. Discover new users and grow your network. Klout makes it easier to connect with new people on social media by helping you find influencers in your areas of interest. For example, you can find video game influencers to talk about the latest game releases or tips using our topic pages. Then create a “Gamers” list so you can remember to check out those users on Twitter, explore influencers in their network, or drop in to give a quick +K in Nintendo. You can even give kudos to people who have impacted you lately by sharing Klout lists. For example, Matt Hurst shared a Klout list of journalists on Twitter for #FollowFriday. Don’t forget to include the hashtag #ff or #FollowFriday!

3. See how you compare with your peers. You can learn how to use social media more effectively by watching what your friends are doing. Maybe your boss asks you to create a Klout competition to get your team to be more active in social media. Create a “Klout Krushers” list to easily track participants and it will automatically be ranked by Klout Score. Who knows? Maybe the first employee who raises their Klout score by 20 points gets an awesome vacation to Hawaii. Oh wait, it looks like Bob is currently in the lead…

Do you use Klout lists? What do you use them for?
