Hey, Ralf!

I just joined this group. Great idea! Hope to gain good support through it.
Also, I had one request to make- I'm new here. And I don't have any tribe. Could you send me an invite to one of the tribes, please? I would be really thankful to you.

Hope to stay connected.

Laura, that's interesting. Sometimes it's hard to know what works and what doesn't work with Triberr. Sent you an invite for the tribe.

I fixed the empty feed on Triberr issue. Basically, can't edit in shortcodes on post pages because they're invisible to Triberr.

Daniel Melbye, This makes sense and now Facebook is trying to be a search engine with remarketing ads. They are all working their products to learn more about our behaviors and interest. Lately I've been focusing on Google+ and learning the cool features that can expand your business. What I love about the circles is they are interest base like Guy say Google+ is about your interest and building relationships with people that like what you like. It's also a great place to meet people and hangout from all over the world. You can start a conversation where it can lead to a friendship.

I read somewhere that Google don't really care about Google + as a social network. They only value it as a way of capturing more data. That would make sense as I have not seen them develop this very much as a useful space since launch

Ralf,
It's do funny how so many break the biggest principal when asking for something from someone and that's make it about the other person by providing value first. We live in such a me world and letters in like this just are a constant reminder to me to serve and give before asking. Thanks for the sharing.
Thanks Tim

This is spam, pure and simple. I receive so much that I don't even respond anymore. It's a waste of time.

That's probably true, Carmen. I still think this email was way too much. Plus, it gives a pretty could indication of the quality of guest post you can expect. Let's face it: it's SEO crap guest posting - and it deserves to be called out!

Sounds as if it was outsourced to a subcontinent centre - the language used is typical of the area so don;t be too harsh on the writer. Epithets are the norm there!

It will be interesting to see how this changes. I gave up on Klout a long time ago. The question is, do we really need another social sharing tool?

What I do find interesting is the revenue model. Most tools are heading towards advertising which can damage the organic sharing that those platforms were built on where Klout uses a very different way to generate income
Yomar Lopez

At this point, I see Klout as a train wreck: I know I shouldn't watch but I can't turn my head away. There will always be standards of measurement that people foolishly adopt, only to have hidden agendas fulfilled. Klout is no different than just about any other set of credentials but, in this case, it's clear that they want a captive audience and want to develop a dependency. Without a massive user base, they have no value.. They're mining for data and peddling products. Then again, how is this different from Facebook? Same principle, different metrics. ;o)
Cate Russell-Cole

I am openly anti-klout as it is simply a marketing ploy, which some use as a measure of success and allow themselves to be depressed or elated by. It's a cleverly run smoke screen for pushing products. Just read through carefully, all the dirt is there.
Robi Garcia

I don't pay much attention to Klout. It doesn't really do much for me, but I did notice the new change. I will wait to see what they do to build it out to see if I would use it or not.
Ted Coine

I opted out of Klout 2.5 or more years ago because I don't like the ethic they're trying to promote (that interacting with some people is more valuable than interacting with others). I also don't believe they measure actual influence. Opting out hasn't hurt me in any way. I recommend it.

The new Klout is buggy ... sort of nasty to be true.

I am not very happy with the new Klout either. I was having a lot of error messages as well. Klout disconnects my FB page all the time!
Angie

Yeah, I'm not a fan of the new Klout. I dislike that you can no longer add topics that are relevant to you, rather you have to use their suggested topics. So I guess we'll see what happens but right now I'm just not impressed.

I have tried to figure out the new Klout pages but it keeps giving me errors while navigating, I'll have to wait and see with this one. Shared it for you!

Michelly, I guess they are unhappy with their business. They frequently try half-hearted things that don't seem to work out, i.e. Klout experts or the new q&a app. I forgot the name.

They should communicate more openly.

Jason, now I would wait until we learn more about the acquisition before i put time into Klout.

In my opinion Facebook no longer qualifies as free marketing, since the only way people see a pages activity is by promoting it. "Free marketing" can still work, but it has to be combined with a solid marketing strategy and channels that fit this strategy and the goals that are set. However, most businesses that are looking to do it for free do not have the knowledge to develop these strategies or know what goals to set.

@ Anastacia: Still, there might be other marketing channels where you'd get much better business results with the same investment of fun and creativity.

Yes! This post is very true. Fb is becoming more difficult to navigate even with promoted posts because of strict guidelines.
