In my world, a Scientist has data which they carefully record trials are run and experiments are engaged to prove a hypothesis. When a data supported and document experiment is found to support a hypothesis, the experiment must then be duplicatable or the results are deemed invalid. No Scientist in the Science world would ever toss their hands in the air and say, “Sorry we have a glitch and we are in Beta, so just be patient with us!”
Over the weekend I checked hundreds of protected Twitter accounts that also were unregistered with Klout. I was shocked to discover that all the protected, unregistered accounts had a Klout profile complete with assigned topics and Klout scores as low as 10 but also as high as 77.
I recently read the post “Does Klout Matter?” In my option, Klout doesn’t and shouldn’t matter. Not at least until the executives team at Klout answer some basic questions and begin to institute some transparency with and for their users. But to many members of online and offline communities, Klout matters because they simply believe it increases the power of their influence.
