    I’ve invited you to Klout before, but I figured you weren’t interested. :-p

    I find Klout pretty interesting. It works quite well on Facebook, and in fact shows that I’m more influential on Facebook than Twitter. The figuring of your topics can be a bit stupid, and yes, that is still a work in progress.

    Your retweets are going to affect Klout’s reckoning of the people you influence (but those only update once every 7 days), and your Klout score itself (which updates once a day). Give it a few weeks, though, before you see a figure that truly reflects your activities on all the networks you’ve added.

      Sorry if I didn’t appear to be interested in your invitation — perhaps it came at a busy time. I saw it yesterday when an engagement had been cancelled, so was just faffing around!

      I’ll give Klout a bit more time and see how it works after a week or two.

      I see Klout has now caught up with my Facebook stuff, and it may become more interesting as it catches up with other sites, but I have another gripe.

      I wanted to add “Missiology”, which is my academic speciality, as well as that of a lot of other people in my network, but it would not let me.

      The nearest I could find was “Theology”, which is fine as a generic topic, but I also saw “The California Pacific School of Theology (Japan)”. That is a really silly topic — if you are going to add one theology school, you should add them all, but surely a “topic” is for a discipline, not a single institution.

      So how come one single school can have a topic all to itself, while a whole discipline, Missiology (aka Mission Studies), which is found in hundreds of schools around the world, has no topic at all?

      And why it thinks I am influential about New Orleans saints is a mystery of mysteries. I know a little about British saints, Ethiopian saints, Russian saints, Palestinian saints — but New Orleans saints? Nada, zilch, nowt, boggerol.

    The networks like BlogCatalog, Trello, SignUp Genius etc are crowd loving networks. You can look upon them and can find good info on online software tools. I will also suggest you to do organic searching; you may find good resources from SERP also.
