Pam, can I say two word to you? You Rock!
Klout is a gimmick. I see folks touting their Klout scores on Twitter and Facebook like bling. Spare me the rhetoric but this is nothing more than grammar school antics—packaged in a cheesy algorithm.
I have 28,530 Twitter, and 7200 Facebook (fan page and home page totals) and when I took two weeks off from Twitter during the proofing stage of my forthcoming book, my Klout score went from 60 to 28!
I'm with Pam, spend your time building your "real" tribe and reaching out to "real" people. Wasting time with anxiety over a silly Klout score is lunacy. Imagine this, "Excuse me, IBM media affairs Director, will you hire me for your next marketing summit keynote address? My Klout score is 75, higher than Daniel Pink's!"
You get the point. I could care less if my Klout score is '0', even the name "Klout" rings of childhood popularity games.
You get both thumbs up Pam!
