Flout.me – Rate Your Social Influence

Flout.meIt can’t be helped: when something like Klout becomes as popular as it has become, there are people who will build a site that goes in exactly the opposite direction. That’s what Pat Nakajima and Anoop Ranganath have done with the creation of Flout.me. Basically, this new site lets you give yourself the social score that you see fit. If you think you’re a +10,000 social user, then that’s how high you can rank yourself. And if you are willing to eat humble pie for a day or two, then you can always give you a negative score. After all, you can change it again on the day after tomorrow.

We can discuss and discuss for hours on end how useful something like Flout.me really is, and how soon the novelty can wear off. But the fact remains that over 100 million people already have Klout. And it’s obvious that not all of them can be in love with the way in which Klout ranks them. They’ll look for something that lets them have more control on how others see them. While Flout.me takes things too far on the opposite direction, there’s no denying that the service might spark something bigger (and less whimsical) in turn.

Sites like Klout try to tell you how important you are. That’s ridiculous! Only you know how important you are. Flout lets you flaunt it to the world.
