What’s The Meaning of a Klout Score?The Pros and Cons of How Social Influence is Measured…
Should you or shouldn’t you use Klout?
In the end, it’s up to you to decide, but should you go ahead with it, remember to take everything with a grain of salt.

Klout, however, is definitely here to stay, as its recent announcement of new funding would indicate, so as brands and marketers, we have to continuously adapt with the tools that exist, and utilize the good aspects and filter out the bad that any “score” provides us.
The problem of measuring social media influence lies with either;
1) users who take their Klout score too seriously or 2) companies who make decisions based purely on one metric.
