  1. Thanks for asking about influence in communities.

    On Kred we make a difference between communities you belong to and communities you influence. The communities displayed over your badge are the communities you are the most influential in.

    This means that people in those communities have been engaging with you.

    Here are more details from our rules: http://kred.ly/rules

    ***Community Membership:

    Kred places you in a community 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.”

    ***Influence In Communities

    Kred determines your influence in interest-based communities by your interactions with its members. And shows you influence scores for each.

    Replying to or being retweeted by a community member automatically grows your influence in that community even if you don’t share its interests. Here is an example: You may not care about dogs and can still be influential among Dog Lovers. If you are having conversations with people in the Dog Lovers community or they are retweeting your posts, you may find that you have high Influence in that group.

    Hope this helps :)
    Ideas always welcome.

    Cheers,
    Priscilla

      Hi Priscilla and thanks for making those points clear!

      It seems to me that Kred’s popularity is growing throughout a vast selection of communities and that’s all good!!

      Thanks for your time!

      All the very best Peter, aka MarketingM8

    Kred is a little bit gamey. All it does is count re-Tweets for your score, and how many re-tweets you make for the engagement score. I can get you all the re-tweets you want, it’s one of the easiest things to game in social media. That kinda makes the score irrelevant. +10 +10 +10 +10 +10!!

    As for coffee lovers, I find that odd.They give you Kred in specific communities based on what the people who re-tweet you are in. Given that you’re in the UK, I would think you’d be in the Tea community!!
