ential online but who perhaps aren't quite using Twitter enough or particularly well. The best example is probably Irina Shamaeva who is enormously influential and who's LinkedIn Group, Boolean Strings, is one of the most active recruitment groups (and by that I meant TRUE activity, not just spam postings) out there yet her Klout is "only" 46. All of these tools over rely on Twitter when measuring online influence. To be fair, they should be called "Twitter Influence" indices as that is what they truly are. On our webinar yesterday we proposed a DIY list of ways that recruiters might measure true digital influence and I'm hoping to get around to posting a written version of it early next week.
For now, you can watch the video here. Just note that the first 2 mins of audio arent working but it kicks in, eventually!
As to the question of whether we will ever have just one index, thankfully my prediction is No. That would be handing over too much power to one place!
PS, check out Identified.com for a similar talent rating index for job seekers. It's pretty cool!…
