What is Klout? Who are the top influencers in the wine industry? (letters S and T)

What is Klout?
Who are the top influencers in the wine industry?
1) What is Klout?

The Klout Score measures influence based on your ability to drive action. Every time you create content or engage you influence others. The Klout Score uses data from social networks in order to measure:

  • True Reach: How many people you influence
  • Amplification: How much you influence them
  • Network Impact: The influence of your network
2) Who are the top influencers in the wine industry?
I’m compiling a list of the people with the highest scores in the wine industry. This first article includes only influencers whose name starts with letters S and T. You will find their names, scores, links to their pages (twitter, facebook, google+, klout, etc), as well as their top influences on Klout (besides wine).
Since I posted this article, Klout made some changes in their way of measuring influence. I truly believe they are going in the right direction… Here is what they had to say about the changes:
Klout’s vision is to build the most clear, accurate, and transparent measure of influence. Here’s how:
  • More Actions Measured: We added variables that will allow more actions across various networks to contribute to your Klout Score, such as +K received, Facebook subscribers and more.
  • Always Learning: We now pull real-world influence data from sources like Wikipedia and LinkedIn titles. These signals enrich our data and help our systems adapt to the changing landscape of influence.
  • Greater Transparency: When your Klout Score rises, you can see what content contributed the most. You will see who was influenced by your content, what network it was posted to, and how it impacted your Score.
Anyway, here are the (revised) S and T scores:

Very interesting fact (6): I was expecting to see Randall on the 80s… And I wonder why is that… not enough facebook perhaps?
