Influence Score is a recognition of a user’s impact and contribution to the community. This is an aggregate result from user content contribution and interactions with others in the community. Having a high Influence Score, means that the user content is more likely to be seen and possibly featured within the community.
A user’s Influence Score is measured by an alogorithim that takes into account various factors such as the amount that other members interact positively with a user’s posts (Like, View, Share, Favorite, reply). Content that is reported for being inappropriate or abusive will have a negative impact on one’s Influence Score.
