Klout Scores: Moveable Goalposts!

Today’s annoying announcement by Social Media influence analysis tool Klout. I suddenly discovered that my score had been significantly downgraded to 52 and the “specialist” category, all down from 65 or 67 and the “broadcaster” status. I then realised that all users had been downgraded too. To top it all, I also realised that all the history of my Klout score had been changed, in George Orwell fashion, like rewriting History. How do you want a serious Exec to believe in such a farce? Making things more accurate is one thing, rewriting historical data is another. I believe that one day – soon – I will stop visiting the Klout portal. This must be a joke!
