Klout just recently added an option allowing us to suggest topics for our friends and contacts to share +K on Klout. They claim it’s to let us have more control over out topics. I gave up when they suggested “Lambs” as a topic of influence for me long ago….
I have enjoyed punking my friends, by giving them +K forsomething innocuous like “blogging” but tweeting “I gave John Doe +K for puppy snuff films” or “I gave Suzy +K for underwater prostitution”…..you get the idea.
So, when my twitter pal Jim (@leaderswest) gave me +K last week for the topic of “Dannie Heineman Prize for Astrophysics” I thought he was getting me back for last month’s +K for baby porn…..turns out, the Dannie Heineman Prize for Astrophysics was a REAL catagory now!! And, checking back, I noticed that HE had “David Hasselhoff” as a topic of interest on his Klout page as well….
Turns out, you can’t just make up the topics: they are suggested by Klout. Here is a sampling, and NO I am NOT making this up!!underwater football (sports)
Underwater Archaeology (field Of Study)
Iraqi Scientific Humanitarian Committee (political Party) ←-sure to get you on the FBI watchlist
Party Of Separated And Divorced (political Party)
Administration Of Air And Water Resource And Solid Waste Management Programs (industry)
