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.
In a move intended to – according to The Guardian – “capitalize on the Top Gun star’s imminent divorce” (meaning Tom Cruise‘s), Forbes Magazine released their annual Highest Paid Actors list a bit early this year. We were happy to see it, as our readers do enjoy talk of famous people and gross sums of cash (and ideally talk of these things together).
As Forbes’ list deals with ratings grabbing celebrities and an objective way of comparing their various worths and accomplishments in the flesh and blood realm, we’ve decided to do with Forbes’ list as we do and see how these superstars compare – in terms of their impacts and impressions – here in the world of the virtual (comparing their digital footprints, as it were; a brief explanation of which can be found above, and a more in depth one can be found by clicking through here).
The man topping our list will surprise few, but what of the remainder? Any thoughts on our rankings, or on what these gentlemen are paid? Let us know in the comments.
