SOCIAL TIP


EMAIL

"Sarah and Amber,

My question is regarding Twitter. None of my friends use the service and I only have a couple of followers - because I follow them. If I tweet something, who sees it? Only my followers and then into the ether? How do you reach people?

Thanks and keep up the good work!

Kathy Grant "


"Listening to your discussion about klout and wanted to let you know how I view it. For me, it's not about reputation and comparison. I use it as an indicator to see if I'm using twitter in the "right" way and using it effectively.

I like to see the people that I'm influencing and who I'm influenced by. I think it does a good job of telling me how much I'm engaged as well as how much people are engaged with me. I'm very interested in being a useful member in the social society and want to talk about and share things that are beneficial to my social network. I think klout helps show me how I'm doing at that.

What do you both think about this? Are there other services that do might be better at this than klout?


Thanks, Vaughn" http://klout.com
