Great summaries from the morning.

Also the best tweet I saw was promoting their presentation live already. Everything going digital

IAB also showcased Brand Building Trilogy

Anyone who reads my post regularly will know I am really interested in Klout, Peer Index etc and read another good article on Klout. Did any join their #kloutchat. I have looked at the responses:

+K affects your topics and Topic Pages, but not your overall Score

Klout states the Avg Score is around 20 and a Score of 50+ puts you in the 95th percentile

Your activity never affects your Score, but others engaging with you helps. If they are influential it helps more

Also anyone know about SocialBakers

My digital stat of the day:

Globally, people spend 1 out of every 4.5 minutes on a social networking site  Nielsen as cited by New York Times, June 2010
