Bermuda’s May Klout Social Media Rankings

May 26, 2015

[Written by Don Burgess]

Klout has added ‘Expert’ tags to people’s profiles.

Users will be able to easily see who the experts are for all topics found on Klout and identify individual Klout expertise. To be considered a Klout Expert on a topic, users must be in the top few percentages of all global users.

In a press release, a Klout spokesperson said, “This feature will make it easier for people to make personal decisions based on the right context and with a higher degree of trust, based on the expertise of the people they choose to follow. By adding this new dimension to Klout Scores, we hope to ultimately pave the way for our users to have better, more immersive, more meaningful, and more relevant experiences with brands and each other.”

It still needs to work out a few kinks in the algorithm as I came up as an expert on Berkeley, a topic I have rarely talked about on social media.

Premier Michael Dunkley was listed as an expert on 16 different topics including the America’s Cup, Bermuda, golf and politics.

Under each topic Klout lists the Top 10 Experts which is ranked in Klout score order but there are other factors in place.

On the Bermuda Klout list FOX commentator and former WWE champ John Layfield dropped one point for the first time in more than a year. He still remains a strong number one on the list, six points ahead of musicians Collie Buddz and Heather Nova. Sahri-Lynn Pringle’s score went up two points to 76.

The rest of the top 10 include Carla Zuill, Bernews Jeff Sousa, Premier Dunkley, Bermuda Tourism Authority and Don Burgess.

All scores were recorded between May 21-22, 2015.

Klout attempts to quantify a person or business social media influence through a variety of platforms, including Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn, among others. The scores run from one to 100 with 40 being average.
