I plan to write a few posts about Klout in the coming months but here’s a starter for ten.
Observing the behaviour of tweeters I’ve come to the conclusion there are 4 types of attitudes to Klout amongst the users.
- Those that truly believe that having the greatest Klout score is everything.
- Those that know it’s not ‘everything’ but act like group 1 members.
- Those that know it’s meaningless, publicly confess they are not interested but keep a close eye on it anyway.
- Those that really truly don’t care.
Members of group 1 & 2 will vigorously uphold Klout as if it is the be all and end all and is a true reflection of their mastery of engagement and expertise. However only 1 really means it, 2 is just pretending.
Members of groups 3 & 4 will vigorously claim that Klout means jack however only 4 means it. 3 is too worried they maybe missing a trick.
Members of group 4 maybe in there for various reasons:
- They’ve never heard of Klout and so ignorance is bliss
- They are aware of Klout but believe it’s meaningless
Which group are you in? What are you thoughts about Klout?
