Modelry - A Random Walk through Internet Real Estate: April 2012

Klout or Klouche? Online Real Estate Edition

By: Nikesh Parekh

There's a rating or index for EVERYTHING now.  KLOUT is the one that seems to be taking social media by storm.  KLOUT is a measurement of your social media influence based on your Twitter, FaceBook and Google Plus activity.  

Today, a new service called Klouchebag.com launched.  If you can forgive the crassness of the name, it is an interesting service that looks at someone's Twitter activity and rates how "polite" you are over Twitter.  Good coverage of Klouchebag on GeekWire this morning.

Here's what I learned:

  • Active Bob Stewart has the highest Klout score, but also the highest Klouchebag score
  • Spencer Rascoff has the highest Klout score of Internet real estate CEO's at 48
  • Most Internet CEO's are penalized by excessive retweeting
  • I couldn't find good Twitter accounts for Glenn Kelman at Redfin and Steve Berkowitz at Move/Realtor 

(Follow me on Twitter: @nparekh00 by the way!)

Enjoy!
