Since I know you're very engaged in your social postings @cindycapo I'd just have to conclude that today's 78 or 79 is what used to be an 80. And I'd take into account what @TylerSi told us about older signals having less of an impact on scores over time. I wonder if we know anyone whose score isn't facing a slow, steady decline over time. There seems to be a trend for many loyal Klout users, but then we might also think that those whose scores are ticking up may not be saying anything about that. (Quickly, for everyone in the very high score range (77+): is your score closer to its 90-day high or its 90-day low?) @TylerSi I love your insights. I'd note that the expected daily score volatility at Klout ~ 60 is going to be much higher than it is for Klout ~ 80. Super high scores are normally much more stable than mid-range scores are. High scores usually vary less than 0.04 in a day, with exceptions, while a much larger swing is very common for a mid-range score. That said, I'd agree that it's not valuable to over analyze a specific score blip for a high score member, but it's interesting when it happens to a lot of high-score accounts all at the same time, which has happened a few times. As for achieving a higher score, big picture, I'd say try to see what's being recognized in the algo for people with higher scores like @edaccessible, while noting the general score trend for superstars like him.

Without having digested what all this means, I'll give three kudos. Very good to see Lithium focusing on Klout and developing the platform. @TylerSi has writing skills that are stronger than we've seen in some previous Klout posts. He seems to be a seasoned and thoughtful contributor. Thank you. Perhaps most importantly: It's GREAT that Lithium/Klout linked to this community forum right on the Klout page. This could bring in more than the handful of loyal users who helped get the Klout community discussion board started and now participate here. We welcome more participation by all who are seriously interested in keeping Klout relevant. Please keep featuring the forum and perhaps link directly to the KLOUT forum http://community.lithium.com/t5/Klout-Discussion/bd-p/kloutdiscussion whenever possible . Thanks!
