User ratings? Social capital? What?

I just noticed that LJ has placed this curious thing on our profile pages (probably years ago, while I wasn't paying attention to anything that far up) that calculates your journal rank and your social capital. What does that even mean? Rankings, I can wrap my head around, as it must be calculated by some amalgamation of how frequently you post and how many people comment on your posts, but social capital? I know, I know: I should probably just click the little question-mark next to it. I'm afraid that if I do, though, it might ruin the mystique. I have 46 social capital. Is it a currency? Can I trade it for things?

(Reminder: there are still some days left for claiming in my December meme.)

Re: I'll just quote LJ's FAQ...

How curious. It would be so much more useful if we could trade it for things like, I don't know, paid time or more icon slots or whatever. But I suppose promo slots are more useful to some people than any of those other things.
