You need a ‘Klout’ score of 40 or over to come to this event…

15 Sep

In a new move, The recent Fashion’s Night Out party at Bal Harbour Shops in Florida didn’t let people in if they didn’t have a Klout score of 40 or more.

Guests Needed Klout Score Of Over 40 To Get Into Fashion's Night Out Party

Klout is an online tool that measures your online influence out of 100. So if you were a 39? You were shown the door.

Not very sure this was a great move, as Klout can be manipulated and excludes very talented bloggers who may have been just under this.

What do you think?

    Since I have a score of over 40, I’d have been okay (phew), but considering that Klout is still a relatively new form of social media-based website, I’m amazed that they did it. It seems quite risky, in my opinion.

    To be so blatant I kind of admire- most of this analysing of ‘who’s worthwhile’ goes on behind doors. But then I guess it probably pays to be discreet, as often you will be proved wrong in the long run and Klout is just one measure of appreciating influence.
