If you are an active Social media individual, you must have heard of Klout. Klout score measures influence based on your ability to drive action. Every time you create content or engage you influence others. Bu the limitation with the Klout Score is it uses data only from Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Foursquare. How about Google+, the new Social Media
kid elephant in the town.
Folks at FindPeopleOnPlus have come up with the solution for that. PlusClout is the new service launched by them. According to the company, PlusClout is the measurement of influence a user has on Google+. Very similar to Klout, it also has a score between 0 to 100.
PlusClout score is determined by crunching 15 million public Google+ profiles from FindPeopleOnPlus.com. As Google+ is new to everybody, not many factors can be taken into the calculation of the score, Two of the most important factors considered in the calculation are:
- Number of People who have circled You.
- Frequency and Volume of information sharing
Although at this time, the score may not reflect the real influence of an individual as Klout does for a user, but as more and more people join Google+ and start sharing content, this may give you a good idea of the influence. Go ahead and give it a try and who knows you may be more influential then Vic Gundotra (+95) or Larry Page(67.3). One thing is sure if you have had some posting or activity on your account, you are definitely more influential then Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg who has a PlusClout Score of 0.
