A +K is a measure for social media influence on a topic that lets people give other users authority on different subjects. Currently those topics are generated by Klout’s algorithms, but the company has mentioned that it hopes to let users submit their own topics in the future. Users get five +Ks every day that they can give to any user in any topic and they can give a +K to the same user on the same topic once every seven days. The rankings, like all of Klout’s scores, are based on data from Twitter and Facebook, but expect Foursquare to be add to the algorithms very soon.
