Klout, the brainchild of its Co-Founder and CEO Joe Fernandez, is one hot social media company. Last month, the San Francisco-based social media influence service snagged another $8.5 million in additional funding, and when it announced that Justin Bieber was the most influential social media profile of 2010, it caused a mini-controversy.
To say that Klout is causing an obsession with Twitter profiles is an understatement. We think that it has turned a bit crazy, and we wanted to talk with Fernandez about it, as well as Latino social media influence in general. So, we tweeted Joe and he was kind enough to take our questions via email. (PSST: Sort of confirms that Klout really is what social media is all about.)
