The social media analytics company Klout announced on Tuesday they were rolling out a new scoring system, ditching the former 100-variables rating system and replacing it with one containing over 400 metrics, according to Mashable. The San Francisco-based tech company stirred up some controversy with their old scoring system, which many argued didn’t measure one’s “true influence.” (Case in point, Justin Bieber’s score trumping that of President Barack Obama’s until the recent change.)  Now, Klout looks at over 12 billion bits of data each day across the seven social networking sites it looks at, which is 12 times greater than previously analyzed. With the new algorithm measuring real-world influence and the unveiling of “Klout Moments,” Mashable details what you need to know about the changes:

Exposing Students to STEM Earlier 

The lack of black people in technology stems from the lack of STEM education. While America doesn’t produce a great number of white scientists, mathematicians and engineers, the disparity hits African Americans a lot stronger. African Americans received just 7 % of all STEM bachelor's degrees, 4 % of master's degrees, and 2 % of PhDs in 2009, according to the National Center for Education Statistics. Thankfully, several extra-curricular programs like Black Girls Code are dedicated to teaching children and young adults from underrepresented communities. 

With this initiative promising to focus on youth at the beginning of their educational careers, students will become exposed to all that STEM has to offer in the classroom.
