Klout Influence K+ Score Rising
Klout score measures social influence. My score = 71 as of this blog post and it increased from 10 days ago as you can see on the YouTube video. The Klout score is out of 100. The Klout Score is a single number that represents the aggregation of multiple pieces of data about your social media activity. Previous versions giving Klout users a title (i.e. Klout Broadcaster, Klout Thought Leader) have been disbanded with the new look and algorithm. Wired Magazine said, “Klout may be ridiculed by those who find it obnoxious or silly or both, but it is aiming to become one of the pillars of social media.”
Look inside Klout on YouTube:

What is Social Medial Bar?
The Social Media Bar was created by the Internet Marketing Mastermind Alliance as an Exclusive Bonus for Active Empower Network Affiliates (ENA) that are part of “the mlm team.” MLM = multi-level marketing also known as network marketing or direct marketing. No Likes UP for ENA links on social media bar.
Other social media tool bars such as visibli.com (example: http://vsb.li/TXGWcX) allow you to create a custom engagement bar and analytics with each shared link. Wibiya and Skysa also boast interactive features.
There is a video on the home page explaining how Social Medial Bar works. Currently the social media bar is a tool that is in beta testing. There is a note that spam will not be tolerated under the video, however, many people feel that a flood of empower network affiliate links disguised as social media blog posts is deceptive and very much like spam.
Below is the image for “Create Framed Content” data entry area with five fields. URL Slug, Destination URL, Page Title, Page Description, Image URL.
Interesting that the description of the URL Slug is “Think link shorteners, something relevant (ex. kittens, obama, weight-loss)”
The idea here is to get someone to click the link with possibly deceptive curiosity-laden words and when the person who clicks arrives at an ENA multi-user blog. More on that in a moment.
This is the test link that was created that takes you to this Likes UP article:
Here’s what the social media bar page looks like on this blog:
As you can see there are social sharing functions for Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Stumble Upon and Google+ along the top of the tool bar to promote more viral social activity.
You can easily copy the link ( #1 in image above) . The proliferation of the links on Facebook are made possible by the easy “Share on Facebook” button (#2 image above).
Empower Network & Internet Marketing Mastermind Alliance are one in the same. People have been complaining about these links showing up every where. Most are blogs associated with affiliates that have one purpose and that is to sell the MLM blog ($25/month is the minimum fee).
Here is a spam link (prior to deletion) on a Facebook group that has specific rules against spam. Because this was a direct to “Share on Facebook” there was no description. It looks innocent enough.
Here is an example, in the image below, of an ENA multi-user blog from the social media bar link above.
As you can see both the header and the side bar prominently display advertising for one purpose only. The three step formula for blogging to blog every day, promote every day (that’s why social media bar was created to quickly send out links to ENA blog postings) and collect money (no refunds allowed). The EN affiliate blog content gets lost. You can hardly see the blog post because of the loud banners and widgets on the ENA page. It appears there is one difference on the social media bar page and the regular ENA blogpost page and that is the affiliate can upload their photo which also displays in the header.
SMART ALTERNATIVE: Instead of a multi-user blog that you have no control over, watch this free training and create your own blog. Be in control of your content and for the same price of a blog you do not own, you can host it yourself and other blogs or websites.

Facebook messaging just got a new look (closer to Outlook) and now there is a new look for Facebook Groups!
It seems Facebook has been slowly rolling out this feature for the past couple of weeks. And soon, all Groups will get the new upgrade and a big Likes UP!
We are waiting on the official Cover Photo Banner Image Dimension for Facebook Groups. It is substantially larger than the original size of 801 x 250 pixels (980 x250).
OLD LOOK Facebook Groups (March 2012)
Here’s the old look (courtesy of Inside Facebook) with 3-column design which also demonstrates the new Dropbox feature for sharing files.
NEW LOOK Facebook Groups (October 2012)
Facebook admins can change or add a new larger group banner image cover photo for their group or allow the profiles images of the group members to display.
The new Facebook Group format is much wider with 2-column design and with the left column removed. These links are now available in a drop down window.
The about section in the image above showing the group, Internet Marketing Super Friends, has been expanded. In the typical format, the text would state “see more.” Underneath the about section is now an larger area to display advertisements. The two column layout is better for Facebook ads that display in the right column.
If the Facebook admin chooses not to upload a banner image for the group, then images of profile pictures of members will display. Back in February, it was 8 profile photos that displayed. As you can see in the image below for the group, Easy Webinar Video System, there are still 8 profile pictures of members but they are much larger (122 x 100 pixels).
