Do you have Kred? +Kred arrives

Kred was created by Peoplebrowsr –  it measures online influence via social networks, similar to PeerIndex and a little like Klout but now maybe more accurate, less said about that the better.

Kred celebrates personal importance and generosity by shifting the
attention from celebrities to the true heart of social media: trusted friends
and subject matter experts. It calculates the influence of the real stars
in your life: from locals, like a trusted bartender or bike repair guy, to
experts in your niche interests, like an oceanographer studying the floor
of the Indian Ocean

How does Kred work?

Kred looks at 1000 days of data –  your tweets and your history including keywords, topics, hashtags and personal connections.

It then shows you your online history so that you can understand the score – unlike Klout, who knows how that is scored now.


Your influence score is out of 1000 – this is increased with RT’s @’s or follows.

Influence is measured by the
ability to persuade others to
take action

And your outreach is out of 10 – This is increased when you RT @ or follow someone.

Outreach levels gauge
generosity through Interaction
with community content

How exactly is Kred scored? – see the Kred scoring system 

There are now some new elements to Kred – they have introduced the + system – yes, it is a copy of the Klout +K but in this case it seems to me so far, there are only 4 options.

Advertising – Publishing – Marketing – Social Media

Users can go to your account and give you Kred in those options,  The +Kred adds influence points to the person you give them to, that will be nice to see. As it appears to me that +K’ on Klout have no effect apart from advertising the website.

This is just the tip of the iceberg – to learn more about Kred check out  if nothing else, there are some great analytics and fun too.

Update – for a treat for Valentines – throughout February Kred has introduced #doublethelove – double kred!

Please be sure to give me some Kred on the way.

Hope this helps


You don’t care about your Klout score until its GONE!



Although some people maintain that the Klout scores mean nothing, its amazing how many users went into shock earlier today when they found out that their Klout score had been reduced  to a measly 1 !!

I did notice that mine had strangely gone down but only by from 64 to 60  I’m not sure if that is included in this drama sadly 🙂

It turned out Klout did have a problem seemingly partly due to the fact that they have an increasing 75 million social media profiles! wow!

Klout were quickly on the scene though by sending out tweets saying – its not you its us, and fixing the Klout scores now with an announcement on Klouts blog here. does seem to be up and running but there is a still message at the top of the page saying that maintenance is still being done, so hopefully all will be fixed soon if it is not already.

Is it that you don’t care about the Klout score til its gone?  🙂
