Kred Communities


Communities are groups of people connected by interests and affiliations.

In the offline world, your credibility on a subject varies with your level of expertise. To replicate this on social networks, Kred generates scores based on your unique interests. For example, you may offer advice on Dogs that is retweeted far and wide, and have little to say about Fashion. Kred gives you a score in both Communities; in this case, your Influence is likely to be higher for Dogs than for Fashion.

Community Membership

Kred places you in communities based on the interests you express through your Twitter Bio and the hashtags and keywords in your posts over the last 1,000 days. For example, you may be identified as a Dog Lover if you have made posts like “Just back from a long hike with the dog” or your Bio says you are a “Dachshund Owner.” Kevin von Duuglas-Ittu (seen below) is counted as part of the Dog Lovers community because his Bio identifies him as a “cattle dog owner.” We can also see from his Bio that Kevin is a member of the Social Media Community.


Influence and Top Communities

Kred determines your influence in a community by your interactions with its members. Top Communities are the ones where you have the most influence.

Replying to or being retweeted by a community member grows your influence in that community even if you don’t share its interests. If you have conversations with highly influential people in the Sailing community or they retweet your posts, you may find that you have high Influence in that group - even if you never tweet about sailing.

Stephen Colbert provides a good example. The talk show host is not a Student nor does he talk much about education. He has high Kred in the Students community because his posts are popular with college students and frequently retweeted by them.

Global Scores vs. Community Scores

Global Kred accounts for all interactions, including those with people that are not members of any community. As a result, some people will have different Global Kred Influence than they do in a specific community.

Global Kred is calculated independently of scores within communities. It is not the average of your community scores.

Communities Have Kred, Too

Kred recognizes that some Communities are more influential than others, so each community receives a Kred score. We find this by taking the average Kred of everyone who is a member of the community. You can see the average score for every Community on our Kred Community page.

+Kred and Kred Moments


Give extra recognition to your favorite influencers.

We believe everyone should have the opportunity to show appreciation for the people who influence them. We also think its important to collect indications of Influence from sources beyond social media interactions. +Kred is one of the ways we accomplish both of these goals.

When you give +Kred to someone, they receive 70 Influence Points in the community of your choice. You will also be rewarded with 30 Outreach Points in the Global Kred community for your generous action.

Like everything else about Kred, +Kred is completely transparent. You can see anyone’s +Kred awards on their personal page at or see their points in their real time Activity Statement.
