How xHumanity handles user reputation

Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and more recently TikTok dominate people’s online social lives. While their focus is on providing relevant content to users and serving the interests of advertisers, communication between users is lost on these platforms. Why is xHumanity the next step in the evolution of social networks? Because it gives users the ability to lead the conversation, create social groups that are relevant and vibrant while maintaining a reputation system that eliminates fake users and rewards individualism.

Why is reputation a key element of online communication?

Online communication suffers from two major problems: On the one hand, we do not know exactly who we are talking to, whether the other person even exists, and therefore can not judge how trustworthy they are. For another, body language accounts for more than half of human communication — some say up to 70% — but it is not present in online conversations.

xHumanity’s reputation model, which helps users judge each other’s actions based on objective criteria, aims to make communication more credible and secure.

The advantages of a firm reputation model in an online space

  • It builds trust and promotes user credibility.
  • xHumanity’s reputation model degrades fake users and “trolls” to improve communication and social aspects of the platforms.
  • Users who are experts in a particular field can show up in the system.
  • While xHumanity lifts up individual thought, it also embraces group thinking, debates, and collaboration efforts.
  • Promotes users who respect the integrity of a social group.

How does xHumanity’s reputation model work?

Social media platforms are defined by their users’ interactions. In addition to posting, commenting, and replying, people also interact through reactions. There are more complex responses, including smiles, joy, sadness, and anger — but these are not normally measured in other systems.

xHumanity’s most important resource is its people, whom xHumanity develops a social platform that connects them through interactions and activities, with reputation as its primary element.

There are multiple aspects of how reputation is calculated:

  • Positive and negative emotions are incorporated into the system, each with varying degrees of influence.
  • In different fields and categories of activity, reputation allows for easier differentiation between participants.
  • In this system, users enjoy high levels of freedom of speech that do not penalize negative responses immediately.
  • In order to reward consensus and reconciliation, as the main component of human social development, the system detects and measures the degree of divergence and controversy.

Reputation’s goal is rewarding with tokens the received appreciation, in a fair way. Participants are rewarded based on the emotional impact they have produced, their contributions to the system, their debates, disagreements, resolutions, and reconciliations they each make: comments, opinions, ideas, and appreciative reactions.

While communication is the core of this social platform, the reputation system also empowers the collective to moderate itself and not allow hate speech or bullying certain group members or other groups.

The ultimate goal of xHumanity’s reputation system is to have a decentralized take on relationships by quantifying reactions, both positive and negative. As a result, xHumanity Social Group members will enjoy the freedom of speech, while also being able to debate and stand up for what they believe in.
