How influential am I?

By · August 15, 2012 at 9:57 am

I’ve found an interesting site the attempts to tell you how influential you are.

The problem is that it comes to this “score” based on how often you post to Facebook, how often you Tweet and how active you are with other social media.

In other words, if you are influential in ways that do not include the online world you have a low level of influence on Klout.com.

However, if you are very active online you might be interested in what your Klout rating is. The site says the average score is 40. I’m a 10. One of the people I follow on Twitter, ESPN Sportscaster Mark May, is a 79. Everyone else is below 40.

In today’s world, do I need to be very active in social media in order to be influential? I hope not. I have friends that aren’t on Facebook or Twitter, but I believe them to be influential in their communities.

But if I’m interested in how active online I am compared to others, this is an interesting tool.
