A Yastalk is the feedback or opinion that a user gives to other users on the Yastalk platforms. It is also the feedback or opinion that a user receives from other users on the yastalk platforms. A Yastalk Index is a measure to assess and tell how constructive and meaningful the user behavior is based on a complex internal dynamic algorithm that generates a score for each user. Yastalk by no means guarantees the accuracy of this measure.
