Do you know what your whuffie is? More to the point, do you even know what whuffie itself is?

The short answer is that whuffie is the sum total of your social capital, but check out page 20, where we discuss the subject in more detail, including a Q&A with Tara Hunt, author of the new book The Whuffie Factor.

Hunt can be found on Twitter as @missrogue, where she and the notion of whuffie have become massively popular, as you can see below.

CRM magazine, on the other hand, can be found at @CRM (www.twitter.com/CRM) and our online content resides at @destinationCRM (www.twitter.com/destinationCRM). Reach us directly by starting your tweet with @CRM.

I’m digging how Trent Reznor is using his whuffie and +500k Twitter followers to raise nearly $1m for a fan in need.

I asked for and received muffins. Got charged for munchkins. Saved some money. Lost some whuffie?
