Skorr, New AI-Based Social Media App Puts Control Back in Hands of Users

May 7, 2018 GMT

NEW YORK and LISBON, Portugal, May 07, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In an era of social media turbulence, Skorr, a powerful new platform being launched today on Apple iOS Store and Google Play, empowers individuals to take control of their social media presence. The Skorr app measures, monitors and verifies social media behavior to help individuals safely navigate social media channels and increase their influence and effectiveness. Developed to the highest standards of data security and privacy, Skorr has been crafted to appeal to the most demanding users of social media to help them grow socially and safely.


Unlike previous generation ranking and influence measurement systems, Skorr delivers insights based on sophisticated, data-driven technologies and patent-pending algorithms, including sentiment and emotion analysis, natural language processing, link analysis, machine learning and artificial intelligence.

The result is the most holistic and fact-based view and control of an individual’s influence, behavior and personality on social media available today.

The three main pillars of Skorr’s approach are:

-- Measurement: a comprehensive index of a spectrum of factors that impact influence and effectiveness on a user-specific level, resulting in a 1 to 100 Skorr index; -- Monitoring: an intuitive and reliable dashboard that provides a snapshot of aggregated performance indicators, its evolution over time, as well as a robust post analysis tool; -- Improvement: an automated, data-driven ability to help users refine and manage their specific use of social media as well as expand their influence

Using more than two dozen data points, the Skorr app gives users a familiar 1-100 rating of their current influence based on their specific demographics, as well as their posts’ impact and contextual interpretation.

“Social media has removed many barriers to frictionless communications but it also introduces a lot of challenges in terms of validating influence and developing meaningful conversations and relationships. Skorr takes a very fact-based approach to understanding what is being said and its impact on peoples’ digital communities,” said Miguel Caeiro, CEO of Skorr. “We offer new levels of insights and control in a very user-friendly app that will have appeal to all types of individuals, from teenagers who want to compare and compete across their peer groups, to I-branders, influencers and small business owners who want to develop more effective digital marketing strategies.”

Skorr’s proprietary machine learning analytics then develop user-specific influence analysis and tips to guide users to more effective and impactful conversations on any of their social media channels. Intuitive optimization tools will refine their guidance as they learn more about a user’s behavior and context.

“Social media influence measurement hasn’t kept up with the times, and previous generation tools lack both the technological sophistication and cross-platform reach that are required to measure influence accurately,” said Tony Poulos, Managing Editor at Disruptive Asia and Skorr board member. “Skorr is built for today’s digital communications reality. Nothing like this - focused on individuals - exists today. It will become the new standard for measuring social media influence and everyone will soon be asking “What’s Your Skorr?”
