On Thursday, Klout launched a big redesign with a focus on “creating content,” which I suggested was really more about sharing content that others have created, and basically seems like a social news reader. 

The first product launched today is only the first step in Klout’s journey to help  users be better content creators. Sharing articles was a natural place for us to start, since curation is such a huge part of what most active social users do on a daily basis. That said, even sharing articles requires an element of original content creation.”

 The new Klout is the first product its ever launched that truly helps users. Do you think this will help you build more influence on the Internet? Do you think Klout score is a solid measurement of influence?

Sometimes articles that are shared without personal commentary do not produce as many engagements as those which also contain a point of view on what’s being shared,” he adds. “Klouts hope in surfacing these articles is that users are inspired to add their own thoughts and to share with their networks.” 

Ultimately that’s what Klout is all about, seeing how much of an impact you can have on your audience. Your Klout score is meant to symbolize how much of an impact you’re having. The algorithm for scoring, by the way, is not changing with the new Klout.

If you’re familiar with Klout, you know that users are presented with topics that they are supposed to have “klout” in. For example, you may have klout in SEO or in social media. The new design utilizes these topics (which you can add) to deliver you content recommendations for sharing with your followers. 

 Klout is planning to add more tools on top of all of this. For one, they’ll be adding more social networks to share content on. Klout has historically let you connect to a variety of networks, including LinkedIn, Google+, Instagram, Foursquare, etc. As it stands now, you can only share content to Twitter and Facebook. support for additional networks is on the way (in the coming months). 

They are planning on providing more tools that are actually focus around original content creation, as well as providing more advanced measurement to help people determine the impact of the content they create.
