Since it is Thanksgiving and I love social so much, I wanted to know the linkage between being “social” and turkeys!

Surprisingly, turkeys are social animals. They enjoy the company of other creatures, including humans. They love having their feathers stroked.  (Like we do on Twitter — when someone retweets us!)

 They live in flocks-sometimes rather large — like we do in communities online.    Whether facebook, IBM connections, or linkedin or like me, all!!!

In the Turkey flocks, they have a social hierarchy or ranking in which each bird is dominant over or “pecks on” birds of lesser social status.  Is this what Klout is about? 

Turkeys are not “territorial” and do not defend an area against other turkeys.  Wonder if this is the same?

Happy Thanksgiving!
