I found out yesterday that Booooooom has a Klout score of 80. I didn’t know much about the site so I dug around and discovered that it’s quite a high score. It might even be higher if I could link it to our Tumblr which has 20,000+ followers, but it isn’t my primary Tumblr account so I can’t.
Anyways, I’m interested to know if you guys care at all about a rating system like this. How much weight does this actually carry? Do agencies actually hire people based on these scores? How much work do you photographers get through social media channels? If there are people out there working at agencies or creatives involved with social media, I’d love to hear your opinions!
