Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Why is there a difference between reputation score on upvotes(question) on meta-stackoverflow and stackoverflow? When I get an upvote here at meta (on my question) I am awarded +10 reputation, correspondingly I get only +5 at SO?

Is there any specific reason?

No specific reason.

At one stage upvotes where worth 10 reputation, but in March 2010 this was changed on the trilogy, however it was decided it doesn't matter on MSO, since the purpose of upvotes and downvotes on MSO is different from the rest of the sites. Therefore the change was never made to this site.

You can read more about it on the blog here and here
