Klout Rolls Out Foursquare Integration

The Klout Social Graph is becoming much more accurate and representative of each users true social reach.

Today the inclusion of geo-location checkins with Foursquare has been added to the overall Klout score. Now you’re Klout score is made up of Twitter, Facebook, Facebook Pages, LinkedIN, and Foursquare activities – VERY COOL !!

Now I’m certain (and I hope) that the Klout team themselves will announce this soon, because this integration isn’t even announced yet on their official blog (maybe Megan or Joe is writing that post at this very moment…)

Obviously we as a social engagement society are never satisfied – so let me ask you, what should be integrated next? More geo-location services like Gowalla, Loopt, or Yelp? Inclusion of blog comments, Quora, Formspring??

Only time will tell, but congratulations to the team at Klout for all their progressive efforts.
