reputation score

Reputation score refers to a person's "trustworthiness rating" as determined by Facebook. The reputation score, which is not shown to users, ranges from zero to 1 and is one of thousands of behavioral clues that Facebook takes into account as it seeks to understand risk.

Historical perspective: China announced a social credit program in February 2018 and by September 2018, Facebook starting rating its users based on what they termed this "reputation score." Tech firms face increasing calls to reveal exactly how they decide what is unacceptable content, but Facebook has declined to explain how it determines a user’s trustworthiness, out of fear bad actors will use that information to rig the system.
