What are the best tools to measure social media influence?

What are the best tools to measure social media influence? | SocialMedia_me | Scoop.it

Everyone on social media is obsessed with influence. But how can you know for sure how influential you are? What does social media influence even mean – and how can you know when you’ve got it?

 
Alessandro Rea's insight:

Some people consider the number of followers, likes etc. as a good way to measure influence. But I honestly believe that numbers don’t mean a thing on social media unless they are backed up by other factors. Everyone can gather thousands of Twitter followers or Facebook Page likes. Many of them can be fake, bought or simply completely uninterested in your social updates or your opinions.

The truth is that the term is thrown around a lot, but even the most influential social media users have a hard time agreeing on an universal meaning for “social media influencer”. In my opinion, influence is all about engagementand how people are responding to your social media updates. Do you get lots of retweets and shares whenever you post a new update? Are people coming to you with questions and looking for your help? Are other social media users recommending you and your work?

Caroline - so true!

You're all totally true. I really agree with you. I would add that "followers" are (normally, except for fake profiles...) persons. And persons MUST be respected. I agree too with you, Sigrid, concerning the fact that influence could be better mesured by interactions. Thx a lot for your reactions. It's very kind from you! Have a great week. Best regards :) Philippe

5 Ways You May Be Ruining Your Online Reputation | Social Media Today | SocialMedia_me | Scoop.it
It’s easy to lose your good name in real life through misconduct or bad behavior, but at least the fallout is generally contained within a relatively small geographical area. On the internet? Not so much.

How to Improve Your Klout Score — and Why You Should Bother

How to Improve Your Klout Score — and Why You Should Bother | SocialMedia_me | Scoop.it
A Klout Score is a number given to measure influence in digital networks like Twitter, Facebook and Google+. It's important to businesses and individuals.
Alessandro Rea's insight:

You tweet, you post, you share, you comment and you like, but how much influence do you really have online? If you're one of the 400 million social media users with a Klout score, that question shouldn't be hard to answer.

 

Klout — a San Francisco-based company founded in 2009 — assesses online influence by using data from Twitter, Facebook, Google+, Instagram and several other social media platforms. Each user is assigned a Klout score between one and 100. 

 

The higher your score, the more influence you're believed to have within your digital networks.

Most Interesting. There is no reason why an individual/biz/ministry should not be using social media. At the present time it is free & valuable too.
