Klout adds Foursquare

Social scoring service Klout has just added a fourth service to measure your social impact. Foursquare now joins Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, in contributing to your overall rating. Could this be the shot in the arm Foursquare needs to re-engage users in a post Facebook Check-in world ?

If Klout succeeds in its mission to be the quantifying measurement that your social influence is based on, then having representation on every service they add will be crucial. I’ve recently heard a number of discussions around how Klout scores could be used, including the filtering of employment prospects based on your Klout score. Best to get Checking-in now.

Don’t forget you can push Foursquare check-ins over to Facebook, but I suspect Klout would detect this kind of automatic activity and rate it lower. Similar to pushing tweets to Facebook and vice versa. It’s easy to Add Foursquare to Klout, simply login at http://klout.com
