Klout Adds Google+ To Its Social Scores

 

The third social network icon on your Klout dashboard is now Google+, just behind the Twitter and Facebook buttons.

Latching onto news Tuesday that anyone can sign up for Google+, Klout CEO Joe Fernandez revealed the Google+ integration via a tweet: “Boom! I just connected my @klout account with Google+.”

Fernandez told Mashable it will take a few days for Klout — which calculates users’ social influence and assigns a score from 0 to 100 — to pull in everyone’s data and “normalize it across the population.”

“We have always believed that influence was the ability to drive people to actions and Google+ has great signals such as +1s and comments,” Fernandez continued. “One thing we have noticed is that the conversation frequency and quality on Google+ really sets it apart from other platforms.”

Fernandez has always been open about his desire to add Google+. He and his team were just waiting for Google to release the platform’s first developer application programming interfaces. Google made that Google+ API available last week.

In August, Klout doubled the number of services it measures, adding Blogger, Flickr, Instagram, Last.fm and Tumblr to its scoring system. With the addition of Google+, Klout users can connect to 11 services. Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Foursquare and YouTube are the others.

BONUS: What Klout’s New Topic Pages Look Like

The San Francisco-based startup also released another new feature last week that lets users gain insights on top content influencers as well as users who have received the most +Ks for respective topics.

Apple Launches Web Tool to Deregister Phone Numbers from iMessage

Apple today released a new web tool for users to deregister their phone number from iMessage in the event they switched to a non-Apple device. To deregister a phone number from iMessage, users simply enter their phone number in Apple's web tool, receive a free text message containing a code, and submit the code to complete the process. Users who still have their original iPhone can also transfer their SIM card back to the device and go to Settings -> Messages to turn iMessage off. 


Users switching from an iPhone to another device were often unable to receive SMS messages from another iPhone due to their phone number still being linked to iMessage. These specific errors with iMessage have been a well-known issue since 2011, which is when the messaging service debuted with iOS 5. They were also made even more apparent this past May, where a server glitch caused widespread message delivery problems. Apple was even sued over the matter in a California court, although the company cla…
