Pinch of foursquare Added to Klout Recipe

Add foursquare to the list of social networking sites that factor into the Klout scoring system, as the location-based mobile app joined Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn, the latter added in June.

Users of the social media influence-measurement service can click on the new foursquare buttons on their dashboards to add foursquare check-ins to their mixes, as reported by Mashable and by The New York Observer’s Betabeat.

And The Next Web added that foursquare statistics including friend counts, badges, and mayorships will likely factor into Klout’s calculations.

Klout also added a +K button in June, allowing users to give the thumbs-up to other users, Mashable reported, and Betabeat added that the company’s application-programming interface served some 2 billion calls in June, more than four times the total from a few months earlier.
