What is PeekScore?: PeekScore is a rank from 1 to 10, assigned to every person. The higher someone’s score, the “more important” they are on the web. In calculating your PeekScore and updating it often, PeekYou takes into account your known presence and activity on the Internet, including but not limited to; your blogging, participation in social networks, the number of your friends, followers, or readers, the amount of web content you create, and your prominence in the news. For first time visitors a more in-depth explanation of what the PeekScore is, and how to increase your own, can be found by clicking through here.
There’s been quite a lot of hubbub lately surrounding Facebook’s filing of the papers necessary to begin selling their stock publicly this spring. As the subject line of this entry here makes clear (although we’ll concede it’s a mouthful), we decided to take Mr. Zuckerberg – a longstanding PeekScore fave, and a gentleman in rather consistent possession of a very high PeekScore – and stack him up against the CEOs of some other internet companies who made waves in the markets, and throughout the world, at the time of their own initial stock offerings.
As we traditionally disclaim, this is not a measurement of any aspect of these men as businessmen, or of their businesses, and it’s surely not a commentary on the the size of their companies’ respective IPOs. Instead, this is a survey of these men’s digital footprints; an explanation of which can be found above, or more in-depth by clicking through the link found here.
