Wondering the changes to Klout after Twitter not so long ago started wrapping its urls in t.co
's; ... i'd like to know more about the changes Klout is undergoing as a result of Twitter now using wrappers for their urls:
Klout_Gauging_Community_Personal_Klout( hootsuite, Tweetdeck, NotReallyTwitterAy_BigJumpInTwitterTraffic_AfterDoingSo_IE:t.co
's, ..., Facebook, LinkedIn, );
Traffic origins were scattered before; now with t.co
wrappers, the origins became an origin; the traffic is now all from Twitter; Klout re adjusted how...if at all?; Personally, i'll have to research for instances of where they've discussed t.co
wrappers; i.e, Klout and how Twitter's move affected them and us. One would think that such wouldn't matter so much; it's traffic; traffic is traffic, right...; meh. I'd listen to them lie to me and still continue to ask questions about their innards;
They should share with us users (those in the community they're gauging) in what ever way they can; insight into their means and ways; ...etc. Perhaps catch on to and practice some of the business practices, ... that Google is here with us in G+. So should the Klouts be doing too. Build with community involvement (front & back side of hand) trumps Build without community involvement (back hand only; that out of sight under-toe getting to know me way; only). Maybe some things..., not ruling every instance out where it'd be essential to involve community; certainly its very important to governing people; looking for transparent to the core there; But, Klout? My vote is, it would be better with community involvement as much and as often as possible. Precedence. Is Klout trying to set such a precedence?
It will come a time when one can predict a company's success just based on whether or not business involved it's customers from the start or not, and in what ways... Klout is about an individual and community gauging; striving to be i suppose (a picture; a representation), but it is not involving community in ways it should; i.e., less of the "out of sight, out of mind; but then show up with insights about me...etc." That seems the worst place to be when trying to take on the huge initiative they're Klout has taken on. Real, honest thoughts? They're not open, showing us their ways and means, to try and pull off the service they're trying to pull off. Klout, stop. Are you here or are you waiting on brand pages in order to interact with us? I don't understand how such a company can grow; from the beginning, without some really good people that sure enough know about community building and then think about telling that community that you're also going to gauge them. In ways it's disturbing to see some technical fellows fellas trying to do things like this...without the best people people with them guiding. I'd feel better about the whole Klout thing if the least tech savvy among us were able to answer our questions or give me warm fuzzies with his her clear description for times when i am uncertain about some of their measuring for example.
