Google+ users might see their Klout scores go up Tuesday. The social media ranking company Klout has built a scoring model to calculate activity from Google’s 5-month-old social network.
Klout — which measures users’ online influence — started allowing users to add Google+ to their Klout dashboards on Sept. 22 shortly after Google released Google+ API. Now the San Francisco-based startup has injected its measurement system with the new Google+ scoring model.
Some users saw their scores significantly increase. Myspace co-founder Tom Anderson‘s score jumped from 64 to 77. Lesser known active users experienced similar boosts.
