+ - Klout scores and users get clouted->

Submitted by bizwriter
bizwriter writes: If you have an account on Klout, the site that ranks social media users by perceived influence, you might have noticed a big drop in your score during May. If so, it may have been due to a bug that the company says affected less than 1 percent of users. But in that time, you might have been judged and even potentially lost out on a job opportunity because your score was too low. And that raises the question of whether businesses are paying too much attention to a measure of influence that is opaque, unchallengeable, and potentially flawed at any given time.
