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.
