UPDATE: My Klout Score

Last year I shared with you my Klout score of 18 and today I am happy to let you know that my score went up since then to 44.

Not only did I read & tweet more but more importantly I have connected my Klout profile with my Facebook, Google+, Linkedin profile

According to @klout I am a networker and I am influental about Internet Marketing, Social Media and Switzerland:

“You know how to connect to the right people and share what’s important to your audience. You generously share your network to help your followers. You have a high level of engagement and an influential audience.”

Bloggers you should follow:

  • @markschaefer – How a Blog Went From Zero to AdAge 100 in Nine Months? Ask Mark;-) Start reading his blog
  • @chrisbrogan – Learn How Human Business Works – Beyond Social Media. Get inspired
  • @cshirky – Clay Shirky tells you how change happens when people come together. Here comes everybody

How has your Klout score changed over the last 6-12 months and more importantly what have you changed?

The Rise Of Google +

The Rise of Google PlusA lot of talking takes place on the web these day whether Google + is going to become the second social network giant next to Facebook or not.

In my opinion Google+ has a very good chance to make it this time after being rather unsuccessful with Google Wave and Google Buzz.

You Gov announced the results of a Bloomberg / You Gov survey and here are some stunning statistics:

Google+

Already 13% of adult Internet users in the US have signed up for a Google+ account with another 9% planning to sign up in the next 12 months.  Those signing up are also highly engaged:

  • 45% of users report reading content once a day or more (only Facebook’s 62% is higher among social networks)
  • 46% of Google+ users report creating content (e.g., creating updates; posting links) at least once a week.  This is on par with Twitter (42%) – which focuses on easy content creation

Jeff Bullas has been blogging about this subject recently. Read his blog posts.
