Some frequently asked questions about Kred that may help you to calculate how to use this information better:
Kred looks for tweets that use the event hashtag #oscars in tandem with an @name. It then awards points in real time to both the person posting the tweet and the person mentioned in the tweet.
Kred then uses a real-time scoring algorithm to assign Influence and Outreach rankings to everyone who has tweeted and mentioned other users with this hashtag.
Influence is the measure of what others do because of you.
Your Influence score increases whenever someone retweets, @replies or follows you. Influence points also reflect the reach of people who engage with you.
Outreach is the measure of your generosity.
It increases when you retweet, @reply or follow a new person.
A full description of our scoring system is available at Kred.com/rules.
How is this different from other “leaderboards”?
Kred values engagement and interaction over follower count, and this makes us different from traditional “most tweets” leaderboards.
What do the points mean?
Kred awards points on a sliding scale for every tweet where the event hashtag and another @name is mentioned.
You receive Influence Points every time someone interacts with you or your content. 10 Points are assigned for the most common actions, like @replying or retweeting. We give more Points if someone with a large following does something for you, for example if someone with more than 10,000 followers retweets your post.
Influence Points are then translated to your Kred Influence Score. Kred Influence is normalized on a scale with a maximum score of 1,000.
