Confessions of a Klout junkie
I am sad to confess that I check out http://klout.com at least once per day. My only reason for doing so is to see if I have managed to climb one single step higher on the virtual ladder. I know it is completely ridiculous. I don’t even understand how they measure the score.
When I look at people that have many times more followers than I but significantly less Klout score it makes me think that I have other values that are recognized. But what are they? “Tall, blond, Swede, business owner, looking for matching project?” Well I guess dating attributes won’t provide the answer. If you know how the Klout score is calculated I’ll sign up for the class!
What is even more embarrassing is that I compare myself to friends and colleagues. There is this one guy in particular that I have always envied (professionally!) and I recently passed his Klout score. Success! Much gloating ensues!
This is a particularly engaging time since I am just about to reach a Klout score of 50! Why is that important? I haven’t got a clue! But I am at 49, and 50 just seems like a significant milestone!
What a completely bunch a cr.p!
Nevertheless, tomorrow I will be back checking my score. Just the fact that I wrote this post shows how addicted I am!
Maybe there is a 12 step group I can join! What should I do?
