Quantitative analysis of individuals YEAH!

There are now companies investing in the concept of giving people 'influence scores' based on their Facebook, Twitter & LinkedIn accounts. 'Influence score' looks as though it boils down to how much marketability potential you have as a person just going about their life, how much people listen to you when you say 'that restaurant is really great!'
The idea is that people with high influence scores get preferential treatment from companies that use this data, so they'll hopefully put out the good word about the company.

"Mr. Schaefer of Schaefer Marketing and others are concerned that we are moving closer to creating “social media caste systems,” where people with high scores get preferential treatment by retailers, prospective employers, even prospective dates."

I don't really understand how the computer program sifts through all the data so quickly. And where is all this shit recorded? It's kind of ridiculous. The only people I can imagine taking these 'scores' seriously are the casts of Jersey Shore or The Real Housewives of Which-Ever-U.S-State-They-Live-In.

Just more internet hype that can be ignored methinks.

Yeah... The New York Times probably just made it up, it's not like they're one of the most respected newspapers in the world or anything.

I know he's banned but jesus...

Who's banned? What?

Also, I wouldn't be so quick to dismiss the value of knowing something like that. Brands already pay celebrities to do the exact same thing, and if they can get that model to penetrate throughout society, they will be more able to control their markets and thus sell their products more successfully.

Dead Herald, he decided to leave, and then we banned him so he wouldn't go back on that promise.

That should tell you about what we think of him.
