Online Infoolence - Klout

Klout May 28 2012Last week I tweeted about Klout-bombing: the act of ganging up on a friend and having lots of people +K them on a really silly or embarrassing skill. At the time I didn't know that the term was already being used, and people were doing it for things like hurting political campaigns. Several people asked me about the impact it could have, so I thought I'd try a little experiment.

I'd appreciate it if you could +K me in two topics. The first is Social Media, which is (arguably) something I have some understanding of. The second is Popcorn, a topic which to the best of my knowledge I have no online influence over! I'd like to see how these two different +Ks affect my score. So, if you could, please visit http://klout.com/#/alanlepo/topics and +K away. I'd appreciate it if you could extend the request to your circles as well. Obviously I'll share the results. Happy Klouting.

BTW, I'm thinking other good terms could be Klout-jacking or Infoolencing.
