What is Karma?
The numbers beside a users name is called their "Karma". It reflects how much good the user has done in the community in terms of having their journals, portfolios and competency profiles liked, completed & verified and shared; how many people they have in their network, if their profile has been up-voted and other positive contributions.
Should I try and get Karma?
Of course! You can try and get Karma by posting informative and useful information in your journals and portfolios and sharing it with your network or via email or Facebook.
Or you can look at obtaining Karma in a more altruistic manner by just simply being a good user.
In the same way you can receive good Karma by posting informative content, you can also receive negative Karma points by having people in your network remove you, people disliking your content, having messages reported or your profile down-voted.
Can I buy Karma?
Just as in real-life you can’t buy karma, you can’t on this platform either. Karma can only be accrued from good actions.
How can I get rid of negative Karma?
As in real-life again, do good. Make positive contributions. Be a constructive member of the community. You’ll earn great karma - both here, and in the real world.
