Social Media Metrics: How Internet Famous Are You?

Monitor, monitor, on the wall, “Who’s the most Internet Famous of them all?”

Wired.com has launched a new, free service for everyone who wonders how Internet famous they currently are.

It’s called the “Celebrity Meter.” It won’t tell you how whether you have celebrity friends, but it will let you know – in rough numbers – how much of an online celebrity you are.

Wired’s Celebrity Meter launched in beta this morning. The program uses data from Google’s Social Graph service to see how many people are following you on MySpace, Twitter, and a personal blog/site. It takes into account things like incoming links and number of friends or followers to give you a numerical score — which you can then compare to other big names in the blogosphere and across the Web in general.

We know Jason Calacanis, Robert Scoble and Mike Arrrington will be battling for the top spot.

Wired writes, “Of course, it’s not a complete view. The measurement doesn’t account for FriendFeed, Facebook, or a lot of other social services just yet. But it’s still hard to resist giving it a whirl.”

We agree.
