Score itself means little. An important thing is how that socre compares to others. For example my service welshare.com calculates your reputation score, but also gives you local rankings. How you stand compared to people in your city, for example. Similar rankings should be provided by all social reputation engines, otherwise the score just stands in the air.
I particularly mean stackoverflow (and stackexchange in general), although I have used some others as well. Stackexchange is the typical example of successfull employment of game mechanics, so I believe social reputation engines can benefit from that.
I mean they are somewhat artificial. What does 50 mean? I have 50, and I have no idea if it's good or bad, since the only thing I can compare to are people I follow (not many), and Lady Gaga. I've tried to explain in more details in the linked post.
Ia gree this is a bit controversial, but since I have experience with other reputation systems that did work, I think Klout, Kred, etc. should provide more than just a mere score.
