Measure of Social Media Influence

How do you measure influence? It’s more complicated than just the number of followers a person has. The metrics usually involve level of engagement (how many people are commenting, liking, retweeting, sharing, +1?). So, it’s not just about your circles of influence, and how often you are pushing out content. It’s about “social proof” — you may think that your content is interesting, valuable and relevant, but are people engaging with it?

Here are some websites where you can look up a person’s level of influence:

Klout Score — the score is more accurate if you link as many accounts as you are active using
Kred Story — I feel that this is very Twitter-heavy in its metrics
