Did your Klout score go up recently? Thank Instagram and Bing.

I keep an eye on my Klout score and watch for major shifts in score, one way or the other. They can sometimes indicate that I'm neglecting a network, or perhaps some of my recent activity is being better received. I recently noticed a 4 point uptick in my score and that is definitely out of the ordinary. I didn't see any major changes though in my online activity, nor did I find any evidence or announcements from Klout on algorithm changes, so the new score was a mystery. Until today.

The wait is over. Facebook did their best to follow the Apple model of generating excitement and interest in a major announcement days in advance. Despite all of the rumors suggesting that it was going to be a new Facebook Phone or iPad app, it turns out to be far more impactful - Graph Search. Was it worth the wait?
