Mashable reported that users can now sync their YouTube and Klout accounts, after which Klout will analyze comments, engagement, likes, subscriber counts, and other YouTube data and factor that information into its Klout score for those users.

Klout added data from location-based mobile app foursquare in July, shortly after incorporating information from professional networking site LinkedIn in June.

And Mashable reported that Klout also recently added Spotify, and that it will integrate with Google+ once the emerging social network releases its application-programming interface.

Klout announced on its blog that it will host a #KloutChat about the new networks it recently added Wednesday at 6 p.m. ET/3 p.m. PT.
