Klout Moments for Everyone!

September 6th, 2012 by Joe Fernandez

It’s been about a month since we launched the most significant update to the Klout Score ever. Besides improving accuracy by adding sources like Wikipedia and greatly increasing the signals from every network we measure, this new score enables a level of transparency that has never been seen in the world of influence measurement. Since launching the updated score we have been rolling out an updated site that shows this transparency off through Klout Moments.

Today I am proud to announce that we have retired the old Klout site and everyone now has access to Klout Moments.

We are really proud of this update to Klout; it turned the heads of the press (see Time, Businessweek, PandoDaily) and turned critics into investors (see “Uncrunched: Why I Changed My Mind on Klout”). Since that day we have seen the highest registration and engagement metrics in our history.

This update to both the Klout Score and our site was a full company effort and we all hope you enjoy this release. One of the things we are particularly excited for you to experience is the pleasure of clicking around your friends’ Klout Moments. We’ve found it to be a fun reminder of how interesting, insightful, funny and influential our networks can be. We also built an incredibly robust privacy system that respects the viewing permissions of whatever network you created your moment on (Facebook posts set to friends only are only viewable by those Facebook friends on Klout, for example) and gives you full control over who has access to your moments.

Check out now to see your most influential moments, and let us know what you think!
