I don’t understand Klout. I’ve convinced myself that it’s best that way. I just avoid it, really. Grading a person’s social media influence on a scale of 100 seems like something popular girls would do in high school.

Like Alexia said last year, nobody gives a damn about your Klout score. I honestly didn’t give a damn about my Klout score until I heard about the deals with airlines. That said, free perks do not outweigh worrying about a seemingly arbitrary scoring system. Today’s XKCD comic nails it. Please, Internet, if I ever write about Klout in any way, punch me square in the face.

But let’s not stop there! Join the movement! Follow XKCD and opt out of Klout!
