Measuring social media influence has now taken a whole new turn. It started with Facebook and Myspace, followed by Twitter, LinkedIn and the rest. Today, it’s more than just the page views you’re getting from social media visitors. Instead, the influence is judged based on the reach of your message and resonance as well.

A number of tools are coming up for measuring social media influence, and all of them provide useful features for those who want to gauge their social influence. We’ve selected three out of a dozen social media influence tools on the web. Here’s an overview.

The platform works the same way as Klout since it gives your social account a unique score. The score is based on the number of your influencers and message outreach. Again, the influence score is calculated based on the number of tweets, mentions, and replies.

Initially, it will display your global Cred by default. However, you also have the option of viewing a breakdown of your Cred score from a different field — just in case you want to improve your influence or reach to other professionals. Other users are also awarded points when endorsed with a Cred, and this will contribute to their global Cred Score.

Maps showing geographic locations of where influencers are most influential are provided, and this feature is quite beneficial to businesses wanting to try new markets. Lastly, this tool has the ability to summarize your best-performing posts as well as users whom you interacted with the most.
