Social Authority
Social Authority is the measure of your social influence. It is calculated by analyzing how you interact and how others respond to your actions on social media. To determine these Social Authority scores, we used mysocialauthority.com. The four separate scores via Moz, Kred, Klout and Peer Index were then averaged to total one overall ranking.
