Klout, Influence, and the Future of Business | Working With Social Media Tools & Mobile | Scoop.it
Klout is currently the closest thing businesses have to a standardized signal that a prospective employee “gets” social media and has influence on social networks. In short, a high Klout score is a simple, convenient proxy for social media savvy.

 

Are recruiters actually using Klout scores in this same way? I’ve yet to see research that shows a real trend here, but I’ve heard and read plenty of anecdotal evidence that when it comes to marketing and other outward-facing jobs, Klout is becoming an increasingly relevant recruiting tool.
