One fine day.
CG: Are you on Klout?
Me: What’s that?
CG: It’s this website that measures how influential you are on social media.
Me: Go on…
CG: So its takes information from various social media platforms you’re active on, such as Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, etc, then sees how often you post and how many people read / like / share your posts and thus giving you a score. The score is out of hundred and you can compare yourself to various people on your network.
Me: Sounds interesting. Are you on it?
CG: Yup. I gotta score of 56.
Me: Is that good?
CG: Yeah man, it takes real hard work to reach here. This thing is really accurate. Why don’t you connect your social media platforms to this as well?
Me: Ok sure.
*I login and do whatever is required*
CG: So you’re all set, and voila! Your score is 28.
Me: That’s bad right?
CG: No worries man. You’ve just joined, it takes about a week to give you an accurate score.
CG: So let’s compare scores after a week.
*After one week*
CG: Hey man, what’s your Klout score?
Me: No idea. Let me check. It’s at 60. What’s yours?
CG: Huh? Mines 54. How’d the hell did you get a score of 60?
Me: I dunno. Maybe the site has finished analyzing all the data. Besides, the calculation is really accurate right?
CG: Dafaq is this sh*t! How dafaq do you have a higher score than me???
Me: Sh*t happens bro!
CG: This is bogus man! I think there’s something wrong with the calculations. No way one site can determine how influential you are!
Me: Suck it up, Bob*!
*Calling people Bob, is the new in thing in Bangalore. No more dude, man, maccha, maga. Just Bob.
