One of the first mash-ups in the country to take advantage of a (then) newly released API from Klout. kLocal makes it easier for business and media to identify social media influencers in their area. We love a little controversy and this project fired up discussion about the merits of Klout in the social media community. Klout was so excited and supportive of this inventive mash up and as a result, Klout appointed Rob the Klout Squad which is a forum for 50 social media and tech though leaders to help guide the direction of Klout.
