  • @iMac73 Thanks for your comment, Michelle. Doing this Primer certainly opened my eyes to the perils of agreeing to Terms I haven't read, as well as using Klout in general. I found it particularly concerning the inequity with which responsibility was placed between user and the Service. Most concerning indeed. Glad you enjoyed it.

  • Hi Melissa,

    Firstly I must say I love the layout of your primer. It is presented in a similar style to my own http://www.slideboom.com/presentations/631214/Pinterest-Policy-Primer-Presentation, with the frosted square over a background image highlighting the text.

    Thank you for choosing Klout as your primer. I joined Klout in May of this year, and I hadn’t, like many other TOS’s, read them before ticking the ‘accept’ button. It was interesting to see that it is the user’s responsibility to check the terms of service, as they are susceptible to change without notice, a common clause I have read throughout other Primers, such as Facebook http://www.slideshare.net/lkwting/facebook-policy-primer-term-of-use-tos-by-lkw-ting-net303a2klw-ting, (Ting, L. slide 10), and iCloud http://www.slideshare.net/jowhite73/icloud-terms-of-service-14833356 (White, J, 2012, slide 9). On the upside I found it remarkable that Dropbox state in their terms of service http://www.slideshare.net/OFlynn_mike/a2-14708439 that, “Even in the event of changes of service, your data will not be shared” (O’Flynn, 2012, slide 7). Lessig (1998) states, “Monitoring in social life is quite familiar. Everything in that life, it is said, was known to others”.

    Something I had agreed to, which definitely should not have been overlooked, was the fact that “Klout can start changing for the service without notice” (slide 19). Wow, this is something that definitely caught my attention. Another eye-opener was the fact that my mobile service provider might charge for the use of its mobile service (slide 9).


    Your presentation has certainly enlightened me to the fact that “Klout make no warranty that the quality of any Perks, products, services, information or other material purchased or obtained by the user through the service may not meet the user’s expectations” (Nile, M. 2012, slide 15). As well as showing me the hidden costs that may incur in the future. Thank you for an insightful primer.

  • Hi Micheal,
    As a former user of Klout, I can definitively say that their Terms of Service are most assuredly troubling. The fact that Klout refuses to accept any responsibility for data protection, privacy protection of any great account, content quality or nature, notification of terms of service, but holds users responsible for so much just seems like a passing of the proverbial buck at a corporate level.

    In fact, it was upon realising how much responsibility I had agreed to in signing up to the service that made me discontinue my account with Klout. I can only hope that many others do the same.
