Klout is stupid.
There, I wrote it.
I finally deleted my Klout account a few days ago. It was after they spam emailed me about their Cinch network. That email reminded me that Klout is meaningless to me. The numerous perks I so-called won I never claimed because they never appealed to me. If not for a perk, then why maintain it?
Going dark is healthy. I do it a lot -- such as leaving for walks or drives or even entire days without carrying my phone. The messages will be there when I return.

What's the correct URL to show your Twitter name, last few tweets, and shows the follow button? Not a link to the full profile but an abbreviated one. It has some question marks after it but I forget the link. Thanks.

Ironically only 12 people shared this to Facebook compared to 10 times more on Twitter. Perhaps the Twitter folks are more cultish?

Hahahahahahaaaa reminds me of research I did a few years back, comparing the mission statements of a few tech companies and turning to social media sites to ask random people what they thought those companies stood for, and then the epiphany moment that none of the customers' words were reflected in the missions.

@Danny Brown Ditto on Facebook -- and moreso on LinkedIn if Sam will let me share a post I wrote on the subject: http://ariherzog.com/killing-off-linkedin-friends/

@Danny Brown By getting engagement, you refer to your profile or page?

@Danny Brown Do you include yourself in the bubble of users who don't have FOMO and would quit their accounts? I would, but I wear too many hats that pseudo-require my participation in groups and pages -- and that's what I've been doing for the past month. I push out page updates, comment on other page updates, contribute to groups, and otherwise unfriended everyone except family and close friends.
Hi @pamsahota do you suggest companies create tumblr blogs instead of wordpress blogs?

@ronnieledesma Wells Fargo is among my best practices for business blogs. They have so many of them and put out great content.

@Danny Brown Goats, sheeps, all the same. Woolly mammals.
As an aside, it's hilarious you start with a photo of a goat -- since everyone knows you're an expert on goats on Klout. I thought you were going to write a goatherding tip!
Great post, @cpcube What will you do next? Your readers are suddenly anxious!

Should I extrapolate that Arik never heard of peeps or dudes until he met Lisa?

I love your "Huh?" at the end. Graph search has totally changed how I talk about Facebook -- and how I use it. And, I'm still figuring it out!

It doesn't seem that long ago when you wrote a guest post for me about the different commenting systems. Man, how times have changed! This new Wordpress plugin looks interesting; I've seen it employed here and there, thinking about it for my own. Thanks.

How many lies are from connections you don't know at all? If you've never spoken since that initial invite, kill the endorsement, kill the recommendation, and remove the connection. The people who you know care enough to endorse and recommend you honestly.
