Klout continues to push it’s presence with a Chrome app. The Klout Beta app provides users of the Chrome (or versions thereof i.e. Rock Melt) web browser with an extension that creates an in-twitter stream score for each of a person’s following.
This seems to be one more step in solidifying Klout’s online influence scoring system as a go-to industry standard. The question some people continuing asking though, is “can they create a smart enough algorithm.” They are certainly putting effort toward it.
