Trust & Reputation

iKarma is a trust & reputation site. My first impressions include:

  • The front page doesn't show me how it works

  • It's not even trying to be web 2.0, it's web 1.0 in its feel

  • Nowhere near enough in place to try to maintain accuracy. If I were to launch a hate campaign against a business, or promote myself falsely, there's little to stop me.

  • Where's the FOAF?

  • What possible use is it for me unless it's got web services / FOAF?

  • How does it tie in to existing trust systems (Ebay seller ratings, for instance)?



Opinity.com appears to be a much better offering - validation, communities, and more.

  • Where's the FOAF / web services?
