To Be or Not To Be, on Facebook, Klout and Twitter

With all the changes whirling around on these social media sites many are wondering to post or not to post and how to deal with all the changes.   I wanted to jot down my favorites about Facebook, Twitter and now Klout.

Facebook has done an overhaul to the social media site.  So many changes with the layout and how you can keep up with your friends and family.  I love the list making feature you can now have where you add your family to a list and then when they post something it comes up in your notices. You can also make a close friends list that is private and when your friends post you will be updated.  The other feature that I like on the site is the top right updates that provide a continuous flow of whats happening.  The profile pages are changing too.  The site has changed to a timeline format and will have updates on your profile listing what dates and time you've done things.
Here are a few samples of what is coming...

Twitter has made some updates and changes lately.  The site now features Who to follow under your right hand side of your login page.  Some companies are now promoted and say promoted under their name. The Retweets are different, now there is a drop down list of retweets by others, retweets by you, and your tweets retweeted.  What I like now is when you click on a tweet they highlight the information in the right side of the screen instead of taking you away from your current location.


Recently I saw several people commenting on their Klout Scores on twitter.  I was intrigued and so clicked through to see what Klout was all about. www.klout.com
The Klout Score measures influence based on your ability to drive action. Every time you create content or engage you influence others. The Klout Score uses data from social networks in order to measure: 

  • True Reach: How many people you influence
  • Amplification: How much you influence them
  • Network Impact: The influence of your networkScreen_shot_2011-10-03_at_3

What I really like about Klout is the statistics it provides about peoples areas of interest and influence.  They have been making updates and added new topic pages to the site.  This is cool when I want to learn about people that are influential in the health topics or tech topics.  They also offer Perks to those that have a Klout score higher than a certain set level.  I was able to get some free Moo cards with my perks benefits!
    Share your favorites on Social Media!
    Have a Great day!
