A Missed Klout Input

Was just chatting with Laura Nelson about this video, and she made a comment that sparked a thought. Her comment was essentially surprise that such a powerful video only had 88 views.

Which made me think…

An input for Klout, should be the viewing or sharing of a video, very early on in the virality curve. Meaning, if you had “discovered”, viewed, and shared something like Gangnam Style when the video had less than say…1,000 views, that should count significantly towards your Klout score. To me, this is a demonstration of one’s ability to be an early seeder of a viral hit.

Of course, that presupposes you believe in Klout at all.
