One of my favorite things about building Klout is that we get to spend a ton of time studying the evolution of behavior on the social web to make we are doing the right thing with the Klout Score. One (of the many) knocks against Klout has been the question as to whether we are measuring influence or just some form of popularity. Is a retweet or a like really a symbol of influence? I believe that they are but admit that often the behavior can sometimes be hollow.

I think back to 8 or so years ago when email really hit mainstream and how much it was used to just forward lame jokes and chains promising good or bad luck. For the most part I barely receive these any more because most peoples use of email has matured. I am looking forward to the same thing happening in social and Google+ is giving me hope that it is happening sooner than I had hoped.

I love the level of discourse and interaction I am seeing happen on Google+.  Selfishly I believe this is great for Klout because we can analyze real conversations not just happy birthday wishes but I also believe this is a big step for the whole social web. I look forward to a day with less noise, gimmicks and fluff across social media.

You and me both.

My main fear of the web is that it will degrade into a troll filled forum where no one ever looks beyond their comfort zone. With the advancement of FB's "edge algorithms" we see it already. I don't want a bunch of back patting but I don't want people to be rude either. Of course this lays in us seeking out other people who are also trying to expand their worldview and passions.

I think I am ready to start blogging. I have a Tumblr but it doesn't feel appropriate for longer form content. I also don't like the idea of adding another service to keep up with though. Should I use Wordpress (or some other platform) for my blog or just stick with Tumblr?

I would say a Bimmer.

Hi Joe,


I am an MBA student at the Smith School of Business, University of Maryland. I have an Entrepreneurship class where our challenge is to get an Entrepreneur with a high Klout score such as yourself to record a video of yourself giving us brief advice about our business.
To respect your privacy, we wouldn't post your video online unless you said it was okay.

We made a YouTube video explaining everything here: Social Networking Challenge - Entrepreneurship: Social Networking Challenge - Entrepreneurship

Our challenge is due on Tuesday at 3PM EST.

Thanks,
Will

That's a good question Joe, but I can't think at 2:57 AM of anything you probably don't already have ready to ask that might be helpful.  I'm guessin' that everything is going to be alright with Klout and Google+; both excellent social-media tools that help people connect  with each-other and entities of various types.  Thank you for assisting Plug Magazine in evaluating its online influence; of course, as it trudges across the puny-verse of the www.  

Just sane:  sez Mr. MSD

Just went through the transfer process to merge this personal g+ account with my work account. This will make using g+ a ton easier.

Finally beat Portal 2. Such an amazing game in terms of level design.

I think Portal 1 took more time to complete each level than Portal 2. I guess with one I was just getting a hang of it, later with Portal 2 I mastered it :P.

Now that G+ is fully integrated into Klout I need to step my game up. Maybe a stupid question but is there still no way to easily use g+ in the same browser you are using google apps?

+Joe Fernandez, you can already use your Google Apps account with Google+, but you'll want to wait until Google releases the migration tool in order to automatically transfer the 5751 people who have already circled you.
