So I’m now [on] a Social-List
Sitting reading the Sunday paper I noticed an advert for The Sunday Times Social List. It appeared to be similar to Klout in the way it uses the most popular social networks that you use to to create a score for your influence on the social web. As with Klout, the more networks that you add, the more accurate a picture it can give you. So what the heck, I’m a curious kind of chap, I might see how sociable the Sunday Times think I am.
After connecting up all the social networks currently on the site, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Four Square, it crunches through all the available data to give you a result. And what a pretty result too, a nice brightly coloured info-graphic. Turns out that I currently rank 6,203 out of 27,779 over all, but 6th out of my digital friends. Not bad for starters. Maybe if I work on my social skills a bit I can rise up the charts, but on reflection, is this really of any use?
