In the past few weeks of doing the Zero Klout project, I’ve noticed that it seems like your Klout score cannot go below 10. I’ve never seen a score below 10, anyhow. Thus, I’m trying to figure out how to make a score that DOES, or to keep it as low as possible.
To that end, I’ve created an account to author the tumblr with that belongs to twitter user @zeroklout. I also made a facebook account for him, leaving all the privacy settings public. I’m planning to use the most naive of social media ‘rules’ to navigate these figures.
I will tweet once a week or so with @zeroklout. I will ‘follow’ anyone who pms the account or uses the #zeroklout hashtag. (Gentle readers, please don’t go out of your way to do this — I’m not sure what will happen if the account starts getting a bunch of mentions from others, but surely it will go up in Klout.)
I’m also trying to figure out how to see a klout score for that user itself. So far, I haven’t been able see one, and I don’t want to register for Klout with it, because that’s a sure way to make the score skyrocket.
If you have ideas, particularly for ways to make the score go down, please post them here.
