Yammer and Klout partner


Yammer and Klout announced a partnership, allowing users of Yammer to integrate Klout scores and areas of influence into Yammer profiles.


Seems like a feature that’s nice to have, but the future plans may be more interesting: developing new Klout scores and/or areas of influence based on what users do in Yammer. An unnamed Klout staffer indicated that it is working on that:

“To incorporate this [Yammer activity] into our algorithm, we need to spend time learning from the data available to us. We’re beginning that process by ingesting data from Yammer to create a Yammer-specific Klout Score.”
