    Kharim, thanks for sharing…!

    I register Klout account for almost 3 years ago, but I never learn about this. I think that this is the first knowledge about Klout.

    Thanks for sharing, other monetizing sites. I have tried many survey paid, but almost those sites are not available in my country..

    I’m interesting in Ipsos I-Say, I’ll register the site and take a trail.

    Nice post..

    I don’t know how I feel about Klout, that just seems WAY too intrusive, just by its inception of tracking social media and selling the data to the highest bidder. As for the stock photo thing… I do have a plethora of photo’s on my google drive I wouldn’t hate sharing.
