Some of you might have come across my posts on gaming Klout followed by even more shocking Klout case studies. Well today I came across a new service which proves a good point. It goes on to prove how farcical social media “influence” measurement is. Meet Klouchebag.com a brilliant website created by Tom Scott.

Just like myself, looks like Tom was fed up of Klout and the “influence” it wields in misleading the so called social media gurus. Tom states “I was annoyed with the fuss around Klout, the horrible social-game that assigns you a score based on how “influential” you are online. This is the result.”

Klouchebag gives me a good opportunity to do something that I have always wanted, here it is:

Tom dispenses valuable advice at the bottom of Klouchebag.com, he says “concentrate on making amazing things, caring about the people around you, and not being a douchebag. If you do that, then you’ll soon realise that it doesn’t matter one jot what an algorithm thinks of you.”
