I sometimes get hooked into reading articles written by social media industry giants who sell you their services via their articles on their giantism on social media.
One today guided me to do several things to improve my status. And I couldn’t help myself: I went to check his Klout ( which is phonetically how you say “getalife”) score….
But, first I read his article from which I quote him on Klout and similar products:
“Companies like Klout and Twitalyser offer quantitative statistics to compare Twitter Influence based on factors such as follower counts, retweet volumes, list memberships, Facebook ‘likes’, comments and a number of other parameters. However, it’s an emerging and inexact science, with algorithms being revised and improved all the time. Klout recently revised its algorithm resulting in a number of scores being revised significantly, for example.
However, behind all the formulae lies a more fundamental guiding principle: namely the correlation between interesting, well crafted content and engagement.”
a look at his Klout scores yielded some
interesting fascinating telling revealing ridiculous results:
And then just to be fair I compared him to someone who I have tried to get to follow me, but to no avail: @Hamsterwatch with his riveting content and despite being an infrequent updater wants nothing to do with this upright mammal.

And Hamsterwatch’s scores? Put these in your Social Media wheel and spin ’em!:
Clearly we have a lot to learn.
