One thing I like about Klout is the ability to give you quick metrics of your social media activity at a glance. It does compile a great amount of information that you can use just to see how your social media communications are propagating across various networks.
This shows the power of Google+ compared to Twitter considering I have just less than 2,000 followers on Google+ yet I have 1.1k comments, 380 reshares and 987 +1s, with about 1/5th the network size of my Twitter network.
This tells me that my followers are engaged more and more interactive on Google+ in some ways. It should be interesting to see when Facebook statistics are added how they measure up.
Klout Score Jump
I had a temporary huge boost in Klout Score from my Kindle Fire Giveaway contest which caused a huge amount of retweets over the past few days, this jumped my Klout score more than 5 points in about 2 days and is an anomaly and will fade when the contest ends. I am curious to know how high my Klout will get just as a result of the insane amount of retweets I have been getting from the contest however.
Overall I use Klout fairly regularly as a means to check the pulse on my Social Media, and there is certainly value in the analytics that you get at your fingertips.
