In order to measure how really powerful you are in the social media realm, Klout has added five new networks. The original networks are Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Foursquare and YouTube. Now, you can link up to your accounts on Blogger, Tumblr, Flickr, Instagram and Last.fm.
Blogger and Tumblr represent two ends of the blogging spectrum. Blogger is the classic free host which is still widely used. Tumblr is the choice of a new generation of bloggers who prefer quicker, more visual posts. Obviously absent are WordPress and LiveJournal.
If you’re a photo fiend, Flickr is king, so I get that, but Instagram? This hot new mobile app uses a variety of filters to create works of art out of those lunch and puppy photos that people like to share on Twitter. Is this really a service that figures into a person’s online influence?
