Klout: Passing Trend or Web 3.0?

Klout is only just starting to hit the mainstream of the general public, but is it a passing trend, or a glimpse into the future of the internet?

What is Klout?

Klout is an online service that’s been around for about two years. It’s essentially social media analytics for an individual’s influence across their social network. It gathers data from your social activity and how your network responds to the content you post or the subjects you talk about.

Hello VAN!

That’s the Viral Ad Network… a company of which The Cheese Grater has just become a part of! At the moment it’s in a 2 week test placement where they look at the traffic and¬†determine¬†which ads would best suit the site and who they’ll target according to the demographic.

Socialising!

They were pretty simple to install, and for those of you with a WordPress blog just copy and paste the code below into your header and change the image location and button destination.
