How is my score calculated?

Profile scores are calculated and updated based on the following rules:

  • Your online presence, The more diverse presence & footprint you have online, the greater your credibility. Our bots are regularly scanning a variety of networks to determine your position.

  • Your community emotional & intelligence rating, your network knows you best & they can help highlight the outliers that should be better recognised.

  • Your community strengths & weaknesses, People with more strengths & less weaknesses should be rewarded, that is their key skill & they should be valued more as specialists.

  • Your comments on other profiles, to prevent people been abusive & spamming, what they say in the comments section should also impact their profile score. The community is empowered to self regulate that behaviour.

  • Your Network, It’s always been known that you’re an average of all your friends. As long as you are in the same network then you will be known by association. This will also prevent people from connecting and linking with spammers / fake accounts.

  • Your activity on the platform says a lot about you. People have two ears & one mouth, they should be used in the same ratio.


 

How frequently is my score update?

The score needs to be recalculated every 12 hours. The reason for that is people change, your rating will change. The score should also be always calculated to 2 decimal places.
