If you’ve been to Klout today, you’re probably in for a surprise. The social influence scoring company is shifting to a cleaner look and feel and going after the crowded (yet somehow underserved) social sharing industry.
Content curating has been a big thing in social media since the early days of Digg and Slashdot. Many companies have tried to enhance the way that people share content by offering suggestions, allowing scheduling, and measuring the impact. Now, Klout is going full force in trying to become the next great content curation engine.
