Measuring Social Score: the What, the How and the Why

You probably were wondering, what is that Octoboard Social Score that people are sharing around and talking about? You can check your Social Score at the top of Octoboard’s Social Dashboard. Let’s see what it means, how we are measuring your Social Score and, what’s more important, what do the numbers tell you about your Social Media activity?

I suggest that we start with the fun part!

We have divided our Social Score into 11 levels: you start with, well, a Start, then become a Baby Octopus, and can go up to becoming the Master Octopus. When you do, please let us know – these creatures are extremely rare!

How do you move up the levels?
