Kelly quoted in article about Klout and college social media effortsJune 12, 2012
Jamie Kelly, media relations director at Cornell College, was quoted in an article about how colleges and universities use Klout, a social media ranking service.
The quotes, which came from a blog post criticizing Klout, talked about the reasons college should be wary of Klout—or avoid using it altogether.
“I’m entirely unconcerned with the college’s Klout score,” Kelly said. “When it comes to the social media accounts, my job is to help forge connections, not to act in a way that fulfills someone’s idea of the perfect Twitter or Facebook account. And I’d suggest that if people spent more time trying to forge real connections with others rather than worrying about Klout scores, the internet might be a better place.”
