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.
Our friends over at Games.com have asked us to cook up a list for them, and we were all too happy to oblige. Games.com asked us to take ten of the most influential names in the ever-growing worlds of Facebook, social, and mobile social games and rank them by the sizes of their digital footprints as measured on our PeekScore scale.
Each of these 10 gentlemen surely has a presence here in cyberspace, both passively – via numerous mentions throughout the media and blogosphere, including WikiPedia and IMDB entries for most – and actively, with personal websites, blogs, and social media accounts being the norm across the board. As such, their scores are all rather healthy, with the “contest” (friendly though it no doubt is) being a close one.
What are some of your favorite social games? Let us know in the comments, and remember to head on over to Games.com and check out the gaming news and reviews they’ve got for offer over there.
