I have Klout

Apparently I have a Klout score. And so do you, but you might not know it yet.

I am better than you.

After listening to the “Download this show” podcast and reading this article, I’ve found that some people actually take this whole Klout thing seriously.

For those not in the know, Klout helps you measure your online influence, a social media vanity score if you will. The more people you interact with online using services like Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Foursquare the higher your score.

But when Big Ben’s twitter feed gives a Klout score of 48 from simply posting “Bong Bong Bong” automatically on the hour, I’m skeptical of the analytics and result. And even the point.
