Tawkify is a unique dating service that will also take into consideration your Klout score in the matchmaking process. Klout is a tool often used by marketers to see how influential someone is online based on aggregated data from their social media accounts like Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn. The user is then assigned a score from 0 to 100. The higher the Klout score, the more likely that person comes across as a sociable and engaging netizen.
If you’re interested in Tawkify’s service, you would only need to answer 10 simple questions based on your profile and interests, and a potential date will be matched to talk to you over the phone first.
Tawkify’s co-founders E. Jean Carroll, and Kenneth Shaw, pointed out the successful factor of the formula that of the 60 people already matched, 90% of them wanted to talk again, exchange numbers or meet.
Carroll, a columnist for Elle magazine, explained to Mashable that:
People with high Klout scores know how to listen and know how to react; they’re cute, smart and connected,It’s as powerful as someone’s height or weight.
