Daily Wrap-Up: Klout Scores Plummet, Jux Comes to iPad and More

Klout’s algorithms have recently depressed scores for many users. Jux released an iPad app. All of this and more in today’s Daily Wrap.

Sometimes it’s difficult to catch every story that hits tech media in a day, so we thought it might be helpful to wrap up some of the most talked about stories. Assuming this goes over well, we’re going to give you a daily recap of what you missed in the ReadWriteWeb Community, including a link to some of the most popular discussions in our offsite communities on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Google Plus as well. This is a new feature at ReadWriteWeb so we covet your feedback. If you have suggestions, please leave them in the comments below or reach out to me directly at robyn at readwriteweb.com.

Apathetic, to the Extreme

Many of you expressed a significant lack of interest at the fact that your Klout score may have dropped recently. However, due to the veracity of your non-feelings, we thought it might be fun to wrap up your responses.

Whether this relates to your feelings about Klout specifically, or if you just have too many other things to occupy your brain than a popularity metric, I’m not sure. At least one of you thought the apathy was a bit manufactured.

One of the best comments I saw put it all into context:

Since many of us at ReadWriteWeb were interested in why the scores decreased but did not feel overly excited one way or the other once we knew the reason, we’ll take your word for it. Perhaps the scores themselves are much less important than the relative placement of a profile within the Klout ecosystem.

Blogging Is So Over: Jux Comes To The iPad

Jux made the leap to the iPad today, and the app is gorgeous. While some of you experienced intermittent issues with the site, due to server overload, the overallimpressions were mostlyfavorable from the ReadWriteWeb community.
