Psychology is my passion. Not to far a way is statistics and measurement. It is true that one can use a statistic to say what you want it to say, but if one is careful they can be very useful.
One of the difficulties we have in social media is measuring just about everything we do. Seriously, how do we know that our efforts on the different social media platforms are actually making an impact? I am not sure we will fully know the answer to that question, but there are some tools that can help you put at least a few pieces of the puzzle together that can give you a glimpse at your influence in the social media world. The three most prominent tools are Klout, Kred, and PeerIndex. Understand these are not perfect, but put them together and I think you will get a decent picture.
This graphic thanks to onlinedegrees.com gives a really nice overview of what Klout, Kred and PeerIndex is all about.
