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.
They’re all under 30, and they’re all worth more than most if not even all of you reading (and certainly we writing). These are the past year’s ten entertainers under the age of 30 most handsomely remunerated for their efforts in being fabulous. Comparing their fortunes and/or their works as actors, musicians, and so forth is the work of other blogs, of course. What we here at the PeekScore blog intend to do with these ten vastly wealthy whipper-snappers is compare their various impacts here on the World Wide Web, as quantified on our PeekScore scale (an explanation of which can be found above, or more in depth by clicking through here).
The folks topping our list are all grade A PeekScore Goliaths, but still there are some slight surprises to be found in the exact order of how things have shaken out.
Any thoughts on the below? Any youthful pop or film stars you have expected to see on a list of this sort? Let us know in the comments.

While none but pop music’s very biggest stars sell recordings in anything like the quantities of the pop stars of 15-20 years ago, pop music itself looms as large in the culture as ever. Below is a list of 2011′s top recording artists ranked not according to the quantity of units they moved, but according to the sizes of their digital footrpints.
Of all the popular artists, from all the popular media, none – with the possible exception of athletes – have taken to social networking the way pop musicians have. While the PeekScore is a measurement of an individual’s overall digital footrpint – taking in to consideration all aspects of one’s online life, both active and passive – it surely doesn’t hurt your score to generate your own content, and most of those below are doing plenty of just that (or are having it done on their behalves). Between this and their mostly enormous celebrities – particularly receiving attention in the youth driven music and gossip blogospheres – there’s not a meager PeekScore to be found below.
It will be no surprise to anyone familiar with the internet’s assorted celebrity fixations to see that this list’s top three names all are accompanied by a PeekScore of 10. Within that lofty peak of “Peek” there are subtle gradations, and these three do – as of this writing – fall into line, in sequence as you see below; meaning Gaga’s 10 is slightly bigger than Bieber’s, and so forth. (PeekScores do change over time, and if we were to refresh this list a month from now things might shake out slightly differently.)
