What Your Klout Score Really Means | Epicenter | Wired.com
Eric Barker stashed this in Klout
The lower your Klout score, the more unique and genuine you are:
"Over time, I found my eyes drifting to tweets from folks with the lowest Klout scores. They talked about things nobody else was talking about. Sitcoms in Haiti. Quirky museum exhibits. Strange movie-theater lobby cards from the 1970s. The un-Kloutiest’s thoughts, jokes, and bubbles of honest emotion felt rawer, more authentic, and blissfully oblivious to the herd."
"We might not wish to glorify a metric that deems a teen pop star more influential than the leader of the free world."
i think klout's implementation is fun but i use it for 2 reasons: to drive twitter traffic to folks that i find interesting and i think will have an impact and as a learning tool for an algorithm i am working on...love the wired pic, though...hilarious...
Christine, I think your use of Klout is more sophisticated than most.
I need to try that for driving Twitter traffic, too.
And yes, that Wired pic is awesome.
I'm interested in hearing more about your algorithm...
