Klout, the scoring system for social media influence, is shutting down • Business Insider
Kif LEswing:
<p>Klout was founded in 2009 by Joe Fernandez, partially as a way to get a job at Twitter, according to Business Insider. But ranking people by importance or influence turned out to be a strong enough idea to raise four rounds of venture funding from top-tier firms totaling $40m.

Eventually, it was sold in 2014 for $200m to Lithium Technologies, which is the company that is shutting down the service later this month. Lithium is a private company that makes digital marketing tools. 

Klout enabled users to share their Facebook and Twitter data, and parsed that data through a vague algorithm to give users a simple popularity metric between 10 and 100, called the "Klout score."

Here's a screenshot of the software, taken on Thursday:
<img src="http://static1.uk.businessinsider.com/image/5af499907708e97cb27aeae9-1426/screen%20shot%202018-05-10%20at%20114456%20am.png" width="100%" />

Lithium CEO Pete Hess discussed the shutdown in an <a href="https://community.lithium.com/t5/Lithium-s-View-Blog/Sunsetting-Klout/ba-p/473363">email to customers on Thursday</a>. "The Klout acquisition provided Lithium with valuable artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning capabilities but Klout as a standalone service is not aligned with our long-term strategy," he wrote. 

To be fair, Klout scores are probably not aligned with anyone's long-term strategy, unless that involves becoming a huge Twitter star. Over the years, Klout scores became a punchline for techies and the Twitter-obsessed. "Klout has been one of my go-to punchlines for some time now," TechCrunch founder Michael Arrington wrote in August 2012. </p>


And yet it carried on independently for two more years, and for another four after that. Nine years of Klout? Though I can't say I'll miss it. Never used it; what's a single number compared to the complexity of human interaction?

Faruk Ateş ✌🏼🏳️‍🌈 on Twitter: "You can believe in evo-psych BS all you want, but you can’t deny history: women were actively pushed out of programming, by men. Fin. 15/15+"
Klout's algorithm marked me as a "top expert n evolutionary psychology" because of this tweet.

(Either this linked tweet, or this one from up-thread:)

"Ser Brosef of House Google builds ALL his assertions on evo-psych (he even admits to it explicitly), an unfounded, disproven ideology. 2/"

Whatever Happened to Klout? | Motherboard
Born way back in 2008, Klout promised to measure your influence based on your social media activity, assigning users a “Klout score” from 1 to 100 based on their social pull. Aside from just the numerical score, Klout also gave individual users details on their social media engagement, like what categories they’re most “influential” in.

People with high Klout would soon "board planes earlier, get free access to VIP airport lounges, stay in better hotel rooms, and receive deep discounts from retail stores and flash-sale outlets," one executive told Wired in 2012.
