If you are still under the spell of Klout, be sure that you don’t spend much time engaging and supporting your friends who are new to Social Media. Intrestingly, spending your time supporting and mentoring our new friends might land you in Klout Time Out. It’s seems Klout doesn’t assign influence to true Social Media relationships. Klout is an example of a brand gone bad. It is time that Klout educated their staff on the importance of Social Media relationships. Has Klout ever heard of the word Community?
The simplest way to describe Kred is Transparency, Relevancy & Community. Kred is not a judge and was not born to judge people based on Kred. Kred is not scoring us. Kred will not make us feel special one day and miserable the next. You have control of your it yourself. Kred shows us that everyone has influence in their own unique areas of expertise. Kred is helping us to grow our community and to become more social. Kred is influence with transparency.
