Klout out for the count as Lithium calls time on influencer network
Klout is set to rank its last: the social reputation service is set to shut down later this month, according to owner Lithium Technologies.
In an email sent by Lithium CEO Pete Hess to customers, and later posted publicly, Hess said Klout did not align with Lithium’s long-term goals. The service is set to be no more on May 25 – coincidentally the date of GDPR enforcement.
Lithium bought Klout for a reported $200 million in 2014.
