I decided to write this article to give everyone, who is interested, the history and story behind the #KloutDrinkingGame. The game started as my way of poking some innocent fun at a friend (@mitchneff) and some others at #UsGuys who were taking Klout way to serious. Now, don’t think I am disrespecting Klout, as I am a huge supporter of them and PeerIndex and any other way of measuring social media accounts, especially because it makes it easy for those considering hiring a social media company to know whether or not they are talking to someone who really understands the business. They validate us at Head of Lettuce Media as authentic social media people, unlike the speaker I was contaced by the other day who talks about social media, but only has a Klout of 20, By the way the average Klout score is in the 20’s acording to Klout CEO Joe Fernandez.
The game is simple, when a conversation breaks out, or when you instigate one, drink every time someone mentions Klout. The winner is everyone who plays, and it really does not matter what you drink although we do know Joe plays with Whiskey, that’s it. Have fun and don’t get stupid with the game as it is just a game for fun. Lastly when playing, use the hasthtag #KloutDrinkingGame or #KloutDG so others can join in and play, after all it is a social game. If you don’t drink, consider M & M’s or Skittles 🙂
