Jenna Jameson and Vicky Vette have just been ranked the most influential adult stars in the world by the increasingly popular social networking site Klout.com.
Klout is considered the ‘gold standard’ in measuring influence (www.bit.ly/Okvrw4).
Klout.com collects information about users from social networks like Twitter, Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn and others to measure social influence. Earlier this week, Klout.com rolled out extensive changes to the way it calculates influence, now taking into consideration over 400 different variables (www.mashable.com/2012/08/14/klout-update/).
For instance, Klout now considers not only the number of followers a star has, but also who the followers are and how much they engage with all important retweets, replies, comments and mentions.
Klout has become the talk of social networking circles and is being used in the corporate world to measure power.
Earlier this year Pacific allowed people with Klout scores over 40 use its first-class airport lounge, the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas gave instant room upgrades to guests with high Klout scores, and even job applicants are now being considered in part based on their Klout score.

Vette & Jameson were the only adult stars to score a Klout of 83 (Jameson scored a 83.32; Vette scored a 82.82 www.klout.com/#/vickyvette, www.klout.com/#/jennajameson).
Penthouse Pet of the Year and VNA Girl Nikki Benz currently ranks 3rd in the world with an 81.87. (www.klout.com/#/nikkibenz).

President Barack Obama scores a whopping 98.8 while Justin Bieber a 91.
Vette (www.twitter.com/vickyvette & http://www.vickyathome.com) is the current XBIZ Webstar of the Year & Miss Freeones 2012.
She is the 2nd most followed active pornstar on twitter with over 323,000 followers. Vette was recently nominated by AVN for Best Solo Girl Website & named by XBIZ a Top Newsmaker in adult for 2011. She also runs the popular VNA Pornstar Network which just closed a deal with Fleshlight for a number of the VNA girls to have their own Fleshlights. Jameson, now retired, has 473,000 followers and just made worldwide news for backing conservative Mitt Romney in the Presidential race.
Vicky Vette says: “I am extremely flattered Klout gave me such a score. I take social networking, influence & interaction with fans very seriously. In this day and age of girls buying tens of thousands of fake followers, it’s great to see social networking circles digging deeper into the real numbers to measure true reach. It’s too bad Facebook is so uptight with anything adult. Getting a foothold on Facebook is almost impossible or the scoring would be higher.”
