Social media consultants and SEO experts are growing logrithmically, slightly slower than a plague. How is one to decide who has credibility and who is a fake. Now we have the Klout score, which measures the influence of people, brands and companies on the web. I would be reluctant to hire anybody for social media advice with a score below 50. This technique should work for six months until people figure out how to "game" their score.
My friend @janiec, professional real estate broker and social media enthusiast extraordinaire has a Klout score of 59. See her details below. To put the score in perspective well known VC blogger Brad Feld has a 74.
