It’s official! Klout has been acquired by Lithium Technologies

As Recode foretold back in February, Klout is being acquired by the social marketing company Lithium Technologies. The terms of the deal were not disclosed, although yesterday Fortune reported the price was around $200 million.

In a blog post, Klout co-founder Joe Fernandez said Lithium was the right partner for its influence-focused platform. “I want you to know that our mission has not changed — Lithium shares our passion for empowering every person to understand and maximize their impact online,” he said.
