In a broad sense, 'reputation' is the 'opinion or view of one (agent) about something'. Each agent may have a different opinion about a given entity and, therefore, reputation is linked to subjectivity. This opinion is formed and updated along time through interactions. As a result of these interactions, agents record 'impressions' that reflect how they value the experience. 'Impressions' are the bricks that properly combined permit to value the reputation of agents.
