I recently became obsessed with my Klout score, only to realize that I am supposedly influential about two things: moms and beer.
My immediate response was to private my Twitter and check my Facebook privacy settings, but then I also began to wonder when I had ever motioned either of those things on social media. I think Klout is confused.
How, then, as aspiring young professionals do we guard ourselves against the publicly available misconceptions created by Klout? I might have made everything else private, but my Klout Score is still available for the world to see. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy a good brew and I think all of my friend’s moms are wonderful people, but I don’t shout it from the rooftops (or my keyboard). I guess for now I am left with the task of tweeting about news and hoping that I eventually become “influential” about something else by Klout standards.
After spending three years building my resume with internships, jobs and extracurricular activities, it’s time to start thinking about the real world. I had some great feedback about the blog I kept in London, although it lasted only a few weeks. I’m going to do my best to use this blog to chronicle the experiences of my senior year, balancing 30hrs/week of work, a full time class schedule and what I’d like to consider a blossoming social life… All while hoping and praying I’ll land the job of my dreams by the time I graduate. Can I do it? Let’s hope.
