Actory: A Tool for Visualizing Reputation as a Means to Formalize Informal Social Behavior
2011 (English)In: The second International Conference on Reputation, ICORE 2011, 2011Conference paper (Refereed)
In order to investigate and challenge a normative liberal democratic view of participation, we propose an experimental system based on differences in reputation and user activity. Based on democratic meeting techniques and social media, basic principles for a groupware are formulated containing typical democratic features such as voting and discussion, but taking reputation into account and clarifying the individual's activities in relation to the group. The prototype stands in contrast to commonly used internet forums by highlighting differences in reputation and activity and making these visible and changeable by its users thus shedding some light on status and reputation issues in internet forums and groupware.
