SETTINGS

How do I edit my details and my 'self-evaluation'?

To edit your profile, click on your profile header.

I can't change my configuration

Please ensure that you have the latest version of Uniks. If the problem persists, please try again later.

How can I add a photo to my profile (avatar and cover)?

You can edit your profile anytime by clicking the “pencil” icon on the menu bar (for Android users) and right from your profile screen (for iPhone users)

Can I have two accounts?

No, you're only allowed to have one account. Besides, it doesn't make any sense to have more than one profile as Uniks is a social network where you can interact with your friends.

PERSONAL PROFILE

Self-evaluation

When registering we ask you to do an auto-evaluation. This information is private and therefore it’s hidden from the rest of the users.

Our concept of 'personality'

We believe that a person is what other people think about them. In keeping with this principle, the personal profile on Uniks is a reflection of how a person is perceived by others and we express this through five attributes which provide the most appropriate description (“the best of me”) and the area for improvement (“my challenge”).

How we create a personal profile

We use all the evaluations you receive and apply an internal algorithm which evaluates the attributes which have been applied to you and how they have been ordered.

PUBLIC PROFILE

Its activation allows users to be evaluated by anyone, without the need for friendly relationship.

VERIDIED PROFILE

You can verify your account through Twitter if you have a verified account.

EVALUATIONS

Who can evaluate me?

Evaluating a person requires being bound by a friendly relationship, so no one can be evaluated by someone unwanted.

The only exception is people who have "public" profiles, who accept to be evaluated by anyone. This configuration is intended for people who have a public image.

We also allow you to send Uniks invitations to your Facebook friends with an evaluation, which will only be activated when you both have a friendship in Uniks.

The evaluation process

When assessing a friend, first of all, define the types of relationship you have with the person you are evaluating: social, professional and affectionate, not mutually exclusive. Secondly, evaluate the person through the selection and ordering of the attributes which best characterizes him or her. Thirdly, you can write a commentary which is private between you and your friend.

The assessment is open to other users, but the comment is private and therefore only the person being assessed can read it.

Types of profile we offer, filters

We offer 6 profiles which are generated using a filter. These are all, men, women, social, professional and affectionate.

Different types of profiles we offer, filters

We offer 6 profiles which get created by applying a filter: all, men, women, social relationship, professional relationship and affective relationship.

Can I evaluate my friends and myself later?

Yes. You can do it at any time. Your last evaluation is the only one we keep and is the only one we take into consideration when creating personal profiles and for comparisons. The previous ones are deleted.

Can I evaluate someone before they open an account?

Uniks requires a friendly relationship before evaluating someone, so before evaluating a user this has to be on your friends list. However, if you register with Facebook, you can send a Uniks invitation with an evaluation and we will save it until the user creates his account, synchronizes with Facebook and has a friendly relationship.

OPEN CONTENT AND CLOSED CONTENT

Open content, public information

Evaluations are public, that is to say, users can see who has written evaluations, with the exception of the optional message that you can write at the end, which will only be able to be read by the receiver.

When evaluating celebrities, comments are visible for everyone. Certain selected comments are public on the website.

Can I evaluate someone anonymously?

No, Uniks is positive and open. All evaluations are open to all Uniks users. The only evaluation which is hidden is your self-evaluation.

Closed content, private information

Self-evaluations and the optional commentaries which users can choose to write at the end of an evaluation are private information and, as such, are hidden from other users.

¿What should I do if I do not want a user to evaluate me?

Do not accept the user as a friend if you do not want to receive their evaluation. Being friends with someone allows you to evaluate each other.

Unsubscribe a friend

Yes, you can unsubscribe a friend if you do not want to be able to evaluate or re-evaluate each other. In case you have evaluated before you unsubscribe, the evaluations that you have done will be visible but not who has done them (they remain anonymous).

FUNCIONALITY: COMPARISONS AND RANKINGS

What does 'self-awareness' mean?

Self-awareness refers to how alike your personal profile and your self-evaluation are. The calculation is undertaken by an internal algorithm which gives a value between 0 and 100.

What does 'similarity' mean?

Similarity refers to how alike your personal profile and another user's personal profile are. The calculation is undertaken by an internal algorithm which gives a value between 0 and 100. We publish your ranking.

What does 'empathy' mean?

Empathy refers to how alike the self-evaluation and an individual evaluation which you have received are. We measure your empathy towards a friend and the empathy a friend has towards you. The calculation is undertaken by an internal algorithm, which gives a value between 0 and 100. We publish your ranking.

Who stands out in terms of a particular attribute?

Choose an attribute and the friends and celebrities in which you are interested to see who stands out in terms of that attribute.

CELEBRITY PROFILES

Who is behind a celebrity profile?

We'd like to give you the opportunity to evaluate your favorite celebrities. These profiles are easy to recognize graphically and have an independent search engine and separate list.

Who can evaluate a celebrity?

All the users can do it since they are public profiles, they do not require acceptance of friendship. To write a comment you must verify your email in advance.

Can a celebrity have a real account?

Yes, anybody can register on Uniks. In these cases, the celebrity will have two profiles, the celebrity profile created by Uniks and their own user profile. Their user profiles will be visible to everyone but only their friends will be able to evaluate them.

REPORT USER

If you think a user has posted inappropriate content, please report it.

GROUP PROFILE

What is a group?

The profile of a group is the aggregation of the users that comprise it.

Groups can be verified by providing additional information.

Closed groups and open groups

Closed groups require the administrator to accept incoming requests. By contrast, access to open groups is free.

REMOVE A FRIEND

If I delete a friend, what happens to our evaluations?

If you delete a friend, any evaluations that you have done will continue to be displayed in your evaluation lists but will be displayed anonymously and the personal comment will not be displayed.
