Facebook Influence Can Help You Get Into An L.A. Nightclub For Free

By Justin Lafferty 

Trying to figure out what kind of benefits come with a healthy score on Klout — which takes into account influence on Facebook, Twitter and other social networks? Well, for one, a high Klout score can get you into Los Angeles’ Playhouse Nightclub for free.

Playhouse Nightclub recently announced that they’ve partnered with Klout, a tool that measures social media influence. In terms of Facebook, Klout tracks likes, comments, unique likers and unique commenters. It also takes into effect how often your message is shared and spread around other social networks to give you a Klout score.

Starting tonight, if your Klout score is over 50 (on a 1 to 100 scale), you don’t have to pay the $100 cover charge to get in before 11 p.m. After then, it’s $50 if your Klout score is up to the standards. Bouncers will check users’ Klout scores on iPads. Klout said that the company will continue to roll out similar rewards at other nightclubs.
