What is this?
Someone explain it. I don't get it!!
Precipitation transporters and deliverers. Sun blockers.
I still don't get it.
However what it is is a universal pat on the back from "social media gurus". Peerindex seems a little more accurate in my opinion.
A heavy blow with the hand or a hard object.
Hit hard with the hand or a hard object.
noun. rag - patch
verb. strike - hit
its not my cup of tea at all
But that's not a very nice thing to say.
that basically sees how many people care about (i.e. click, retweet, comment on) stuff that you put out on Facebook, twitter and so on and gives you a sort of score based on that. Shows how much of an influencer you are, or whether you are worthless and no one loves you.
I have like 32, apparently.
Still don't get it
wouldn't bother with it really.
I mean, it doesn't aggregate DiS profile views over the last 3 years
clearly of no use to meowington
S_Y_B deciding to put AQOS on hiatus for a bit plus you constantly mentioning your breasts have probably sealed your win
I'm pretty sure he's pipped me. Think about it. He got 100+ people clicking his profile every week for 20 weeks. THATS FUCKING LOADS! my tits could never do that.
Its gonna be really creepy if you win again, which is exactly why I think you will; never underestimate your tits!
i seem to remember having 0% impact on anything it related to. luckily all those things were pointless (facebook, twitter etc) so i wasnt really bothered.
You can affix the word "dirty old" in front of anything that rhymes with it and it always fits
Grammy Awards, Cats, and Politics. I'm such a bore.
Basically all I need is 'bitches' and I'm sorted.
if so, fuck it.
then BAM! score.
Klout is definitely the worst and most pointless
What is there to get excited about? What am I supposed to be using it for/getting excited about? I DO NOT UNDERSTAND
you click the app
it gives you a score
you share your score on your social media - thus linking to the app
the people you share it with click the app...
and so on
in the meantime the developers trawl and mine your data and collect ad revenue
until everyone on the internet has a score and the developers sell the app to a slow moving marketing giant looking to get in on social media
the next week the new flavour-of-the-minute appears
rinse and repeat
I think the point is that it professes to show you who would be the best person to get talking about, say, a new gluten-free cereal by finding out whose tweets, FB updates, etc. on gluten-free cereal already show as being most popular (via likes/RTs/etc.).
So if we imagine that was you, a company producing a new gluten-free cereal might send you a free sample of the new stuff in the hope you'd make some noise about it and generate sales/interest. And they'd have got all those extra sales for the price of a box of cereal and postage.
if you're a company that produces gluten-free cereal, you'd probably want to be influential in gluten-free cereals yourself, while if you're a multinational company with the social media "klout" of a corner shop, you're probably doing something wrong.
pretty sure you're not the sort of person that would get excited by it, and thats a good thing.
1. Turn Facebook Platform off.
2. Win at life.
(Step 2 automatically happens on completion of step 1)
The big ben twitter account that simply tweets on the hour is an influential figure with a score of 69 and is knowledgeable about drugs.
BONG all the time. Ahhh Klout...
Thats the question IM asking.
