    Cinch launched last September in an effort to help Klout users tap their influencer and expert graphs for advice. For the few of you still using the Cinch app, Klout recommends that you use Jelly or Yabbly.

    Last month, Klout announced that it is being acquired by social marketing company Lithium Technologies. Earlier this year, the company added a content creation element to its platform.
