I periodically check my score on Klout to see how well it ranks the general interest of the kinds of information I am posting and the amount of activity taking place on my twitter, facebook, App.net and LinkedIn.
The thing is, a score on Klout is pretty transient; you have to really work at it to maintain any kind of high score and that takes a lot of effort.
I noticed recently that I’d hit a huge drop-off in social networking activity with a corresponding drop in my Klout score.
I’m beginning to work a lot more in Github these days and it is a delight to see the daily updated activity measure “rug” on the bottom of the screen.
Looking at it for the same period as the Klout breakdown above, there’s a fairly obvious correspondence between the amount of activity on here and my social networking.
So there you go. The proof.
OK, I guess it was pretty obvious… Less social networking means more work gets done. For me at least.
