Because We Want
1. To read only relevant content.
2. To have trust in the individuals we transact with online.
3. Our opinion and votes to have more weight on areas where we are experts.
4. To be somehow compensated for being measured and contribute content on Internet.
Because we need to be up to date on who to trust, who other people trust, who is important, and who decides who is important.
One of the biggest issues with the explosion of social media is a lack of effective ways to filter the signal from the noise — in other words, to figure out who we should pay attention to and who’s content / advice we should trust.
ReputationROOM algorithm measures reputation based on content ratings which precedes people just like their reputation does in the real world. For content they post on different web sites users are compensated with different reputation for different areas of their interests.
