Klout Launches New Profile Pages That Are Kinda Pinterest-y

klout-logoKlout has rolled out new profile pages that … I hate to say it, but there’s no avoiding it … are kinda Pinterest-y.

Sure, the top part with your name and avatar is actually more Twitter-like than anything, but as you scroll down you’ll see what I mean. Your “top moments” are now presented as small tiles (or cards) that unmistakably look like a Pinterest board.

In its blog post, Klout says “the new modular, tiled layout of the profile will allow us to add more interesting data points about your influence down the line.” One big thing that needs to be added is a way to change the gradient background image behind the username and avatar at the top.

Here’s a look at my new profile page:


There are other changes at Klout, too:

  • Personal Klout Perks page: All Perks are now on a dedicated page, making it easier to check what you’re eligible for or the status of Perks you’ve claimed.
  • Perks Showcase: A new page that shows the conversation around Perks. (Also presented in a very Pinterest-y tile layout.)_

These updates are all live now and should be visible when logged in to your account.
