I have been a little intreagued by services like Klout that try to measure your ‘social value’. However, after a 3 day weekend I came back and checked Klout and this is what I saw:
Did I become significantly less influential because I wasn’t there for 3 days? I don’t think so! If I had abandoned the web for a month or two, I would have believed it, but 3 days?!?
I like the notion of having some sort of credibility score, but this is just no good.
