In online social networks (OSNs), to evaluate trust from one user to another indirectly connected user, the trust evidence in the trusted paths (i.e., paths built through intermediate trustful users) should be carefully treated. Some paths may overlap with each other, leading to a unique challenge of path dependence, i.e., how to aggregate the trust values of multiple dependent trusted paths. OSNs bear the characteristic of high clustering, which makes the path dependence phenomenon common… CONTINUE READING
