In my last blog, “Clout vs. Klout – Or the Real Meaning of Social Influence,” I pulled together information which concluded that the most visible people are not necessarily correlated with influence, and word-of-mouth recognition can only be harnessed by targeting large numbers of ordinary influencers. That naturally raises the question, “Who are these influencers and how DO we find them?” Is there some way of identifying those people who are connected to a critical mass of easily influenced people?
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.
