ADD ALL YOUR SOCIAL PROFILES, ESPECIALLY FACEBOOK 

Everyone has a Klout score automatically generated from Twitter, which serves as the primary account. Up to 12 social media profiles can be linked to your account, with at least 6 more being added in the near future. Including more profiles creates a clearer picture of your brand’s total social impact, especially if your strongest platform is not Twitter. 

Tip: Adding Facebook significantly improves your score, more than adding other platforms.
