Yup. I must be doing something right, at least as far as promoting myself via social media. Klout is an online service that measures your reach on the Internet, passes the data through some sort of proprietary algorithm, and spits out your Klout Score. Mine has just reached a new high of 47.
According to their service, my Klout Score of 47 means that I’m in the Top 30% of people who are active in social media. By comparison, Seanan McGuire, the author of the October Daye series, has a score of 60. Internationally best-selling author Hugh Howey has a score of 70. And George Takei, who played Sulu in the original Star Trek and has gained current notoriety with his sparkling online reviews of odd products, has a score of 92.
Apparently, I still have a ways to go in my social media endeavors.
