Klout is bad for your soul

Klout is bad for your soul

I tried it out, using it as another SEO branch to my empire. It's sort of like high school, grading you with the cool kids and whether you pass muster. But it doesn't tell you how to improve your score, your reach. What steps are needed to increase your amplification? Your network? The first day I tried it, it deemed me an expert at The Sopranos. Was it because I posted a comment about the Sopranos on my friend's facebook comment field?

Since I do take the time to cull my search words, it'd be nice if Klout would trace them so I can find out where my expertise came from and where I can apply more to different subject matters. If I'm influencing people, where?? Is my reach better on Twitter or facebook? Am I commenting enough? Does it track my business page on facebook, which would be helpful. How would I know?

I'm proud that I'm in my 40s (age wise as well!) but how is that helpful on the world wide internet? I'd like to know if I can make my knowledge helpful for someone and where would that be?

If you can figure it out, let me know!
