The New Reputation Economy - What You Need to Know

The New Reputation Economy - What You Need to Know | The Social Entrepreneur | Scoop.it

This article was written by Rachel Botsman for WiredUK. I posted her Ted Talk the other day on this relevant, evolving topic., the reputation economy.

 

Rachel goes deeper into this with great insights, information and takeaways that are important for all of us professionally and personally.  

 

Intro:

 

"Imagine a world where banks take into account your online reputation alongside traditional credit ratings to determine your loan;

 

**where headhunters hire you based on the expertise you've demonstrated on online forums such as Quora;

 

**where your status from renting a house through Airbnb helps you become a trusted car renter on WhipCar 

 

**where your feedback on eBay can be used to get a head-start selling on Etsy 

 

**where traditional business cards are replaced by profiles of your digital trustworthiness, updated in real-time.

 

Where reputation data becomes the window into how we behave, what motivates us, how our peers view us and ultimately whether we can or can't be trusted.


Welcome to the reputation economy, where your online history becomes more powerful than your credit history.

 

An aggregated online reputation having a real-world value holds enormous potential for sectors where trust is fractured:

 

**banking; e-commerce, where value is exponentially increased by knowing who someone really is

 

**peer-to-peer marketplaces, where a high degree of trust is required between strangers;

 

**where a traditional approach based on disjointed information sources is currently inefficient, such as recruiting. .

 

Early influence and reputation aggregators will undoubtedly learn by trial and error -- but they will also face the significant challenge of pioneering the use of reputation data in a responsible way.

 

There's a challenge beyond that: reputation is largely contextual, so it's tricky to transport it to other situations.

.

It's the culmination of many layers of reputation you build in different places that genuinely reflect who you are as a person and figuring out exactly how that carries value in a variety of contexts.

 

The most basic level is verification The larger opportunity is carrying social matches based on like-minded individuals across marketplaces.

Trust and the Sharing Economy: A New Business Model | Trusted Advisor

Trust and the Sharing Economy: A New Business Model | Trusted Advisor | The Social Entrepreneur | Scoop.it
[Trust & Reputation Economy](whitepaper): Trust and the Sharing Economy: A New Business Model #mVILLAGE - Trust Beyond the Sharing Economy

Success built in the Sharing Economy will probably form the foundation of broader applications of Trust data. The winner here-now has a much greater chance at longer-term success as well.

The Sharing Economy is itself a play in a much grander fundamental shift. It is a shift from an infrastructure that protects people from each other, to an infrastructure that helps people trust each other. Getting the fundamentals of trust right will make it easier to navigate a series of reinforcing positive economic waves.

Airbnb and asset rental companies are, in many ways, still working off the paradigm of scale economies, the low-hanging economic fruit of our time.

Trust metrics will offer even greater economic value down the road, when massive economic gains can be reaped by applying them to things like:
- Improving actuarial science for auto insurance companies
- Improving management control systems for corporate organizations
- Changing parole policies for sentencing guidelines in the prison system
- Altering bonding requirements for positions of responsibility
- Lowering default rates on credit cards and mortgage lending

The model:
T = (Credibility) + (Reliability) + (Intimacy)
(Self-Orientation)
Where:
T = Trustworthiness
C = Credibility: truthfulness, competence, credentials, transparency
R = Reliability: dependability, track record, integrity, predictability
I = Intimacy: others feel secure sharing information, empathetic, discreet
S = Self-Orientation: focus of attention (self vs. others), selfishness, self-absorption, self-preoccupation

To make the equation more accessible to retail audiences, I suggest restating the equation as four positively-stated variables, with less psychological jargon.
Credibility + Reliability + Familiarity + Sociability

Between these four concepts, nearly all common forms of ‘trustworthiness’ are covered.
How will people come to willingly give up information about their own personal behaviors? There are three possible answers:
- Financial
- Status
- Gamification

Getting to The Bottom Line of Social Influential

[Social Media Marketing]: Getting to The Bottom Line of Social Influential
 

“Social Media is not social... people are.”
 

The Technology, innovation and social media award winners that grace conference stages and headlines annually since 1990 have been the companies at the heart of the technology boom, the Mashables, Twitters, Klouts, and Apple size companies who create gadgets, and apps; as well as those who rate and write about them. This has left the non-tech business world in a fog.
 

According to Marketing Professor and Social Media Strategist Themelis Cuiper, “Social Media is not social... people are.” Return on Investment (ROI) is not the key factor, but rather Return on Action (ROA) is what he teaches his students and clients to expect from their so-media strategy. Damon Ladd-Thomas of Georgia Commerce Club on the other hand says, “It’s all about commerce.” He and his wife Tatyana founded the “only social chamber in Georgia.” With over 4 million monthly page views, they work to help their members actualize returns on their so-media investments. Whether you agree with ROI or ROA, there are tangible benefits to so-media when done well.

 

In order to have a successful business, operations, human resource, or client management plan you must have an effective Social Media Strategy. The companies that have earned my loyalty are those that care enough to interact with their customers.

Facebook's rise never ceases to amaze us - from a net income of $229 million in 2009 to a cool $1 billion last year, as illustrated in our latest infographic. Among other things, we look at the number of active Facebook users around the globe (Asia has the most users, but the U.S. has the largest penetration per population), what they actually do on Facebook (like uploading 250 million photos a day), the games they like to play, and some interesting facts from Facebook's recent IPO filing.
