Klout, the Super Bowl, and Our Addiction to Shooting the Messenger

Convince & Convert

According to the Indianapolis Super Bowl Host Committee , Klout was used to help identify the participants, and the list was augmented manually with known local bloggers, gadflies, and connectors. I do not know how many of the 46 were “found” by Klout versus already known by the committee, and it’s not particularly relevant. I have addressed it below through cmp.ly (which I love, am an investor in, and very much wish the host committee would have adopted).

Sherrilynne Starkie

Hot the heels of having been compelled to answer questions from a Senate committee hearing on Russian interference in the US election, Twitter and Facebook have both introduced new ‘transparency’ policies, features and functions.

Content demand: how to cope

Sherrilynne Starkie

Many organizations establish a governing body such as a center of excellence, an editorial board or steering committee to define how content is developed, curated, created and reviewed; and to establish other publishing standards and practices. Do you struggle to keep up with the demand for quality content? You are not alone. Today’s ‘always on’ consumers are a thirsty bunch seeking a constant flow of new, fresh experiences.
