User influence monitoring service Kred, has created Kred Story, a rich visual experience for viewing one’s social stream. Kred has traditionally competed with Klout on influence measurement, the new Kred Story takes a different approach as it aims to find and display influential activity in a visually appealing layout.
The layout places more of an emphasis on images pulled from links and social accounts for an appealing newspaper-esque layout. Included with the updates are top influencers, locations, related words and top bloggers around an account or hastag.
Listed Tweets show Retweet info, links and main images (for those updates with links or media attached). When clicking on the Retweet button, users can see the total influence points as well as those who have Retweeted. Additional buckets pull in user profiles and data around a give day/time period.
Kred is a nifty little tool for marketers as they can find the type of content that is popular around a topic as well as those people who are actually influencing topics.
Kred will open each account/hashtag search in a 1,200 day view within the social stream Kred is rolling out invitations each day, to sign up head over to Kred.com and for more infromation, see the Kred blog.
