Introduction
 Current Social Networks:
 Provide generic privacy settings for sharing information
 Do not take user’s trust into account
INSIGHT Centre for Data Analytics www.insight-centre.org
Semantic Web & Linked Data
Research Programme
Introduction
In reality, we only share parts of our
information with whomever we trust
INSIGHT Centre for Data Analytics www.insight-centre.org
Semantic Web & Linked Data

Social Factors
 Trust judgments are influenced by Social Factors:
 Past interactions with a person
 Opinions of a person’s actions
 Other people’s opinions
 Rumours
 Psychological factors impacted over time
 Life events
 and so forth
 These can be hard to compute since the
information required is limited and unavailable in
Social Networks
INSIGHT Centre for Data Analytics www.insight-centre.org
Semantic Web & Linked Data

Research Questions
1. What is the user’s perception of trust?
2. Which information extracted from Social
Networks is useful for computing trust?
3. For what and for whom can trust be
computed from the information in
Social Networks?

Editor's Notes

  1. Generic privacy settings – SN do not provide privacy settings for each part of the information SNs do not cater for trust, neither capture trust not even provide users to enter any trust information Assumes that every person in ones social graph has the same trust level Does not provide users to enter trust values for different user lists Cumbersome to manage contacts with respect to trust
  2. We aim to answer these questions by analysing user interactions in Social Networks
  3. The results show that participants prefer to share content from external sources into Twitter and Facebook since 39% of the participants frequently share within Twitter and 33% within Facebook. 31% of the participants occasionally share external content into Twitter and 47% into Facebook. LinkedIn is the least used for sharing external content since 64% never share external content into LinkedIn. Google+ is also not popular for sharing since 40% never share content within Google+.
  4. The results show that participants prefer to re-share or retweet from within Twitter since 38% of the participants frequently retweet within Twitter. Although only 16% frequently re-share in Facebook, 56% do re-share occasionally whilst in Twitter 34% occasionally retweet. LinkedIn is the least popular Social Network for re-sharing since 70% never re-share. Google+ is the second least preferred Social Network since 46% never re-share.
  5. The results show that the “Like” button in Facebook is the most frequently used since 48% of the participants use that functionality whereas only 13% frequently use the “ Favourite ” button in Twitter. However, 39% occasionally use the “ Favourite ” button in Twitter whereas 36% occasion- ally use the “ Like ” button in Facebook and in Google+ 36% occasionally use the “ +1 ” . LinkedIn is the least preferred Social Network for using the “ Like ” button since 66% never use this functionality. In Google+, 35% of the participants never use the “ +1 ” and in Twitter, 30% of the participants never use the “ Favourite ” button.
  6. In Facebook, 69% “Like” comments, 67% “Like” status updates, 63% “Like” photos, 54% “Like” external content, 34% like videos and 32% like profile updates. In the other Social Networks, the results show a similar trend whereby participants “Like”, “+1” or “ Favourite ” more status updates, comments, external content and photos. In Twitter for in- stance, external content is the most “ Favourite ” since 35% of the participants “ Favourite ” external content and 31% “ Favourite ” status updates. Whereas in Google+, 25% of the participants “ +1 ” external content and 20% “ +1 ” status updates. Once again, LinkedIn is the least preferred Social platform for using the “ Like ” button.
  7. The results show that commenting in Facebook and replying in Twitter are the most frequently used since 31% frequently comment in Facebook and 25% reply in Twitter. Moreover, 52% occasionally comment in Facebook and 38% reply in Twitter. Once again, LinkedIn is the least preferred Social Network for commenting since 67% partic- ipants never comment in LinkedIn. Moreover, in Google+ 46% never comment.
  8. The results show that tagging and mentioning other users is the least of the user interaction types used. Only 24% frequently tag in Facebook; 21% frequently mention other users in Twitter and in Google+ only 1% frequently tag. Moreover, 42% occasionally tag users in Facebook, 42% occasionally mention users in Twitter and 19% occasionally tag users in Google+. Again, LinkedIn is the least preferred Social Network for tagging since 78% of the participants never tag. In twitter, 21% never mention users; in Facebook 24% never tag users; and in Google+ 54% never tag.
  9. From the results it can be noted that 65% of the participants are more concerned with trusting the source. 57% of the participants perceive trust as trust in the content and trust in the belief that a person will act according to the user’s expectations. Surprisingly, only 45% of the participants have selected that trust means a person is reliable if s/he shares content with the participant.
  10. The results show that participants trust the content most when they use the share button.
  11. Participants also perceive trust- ing the content more whilst re-sharing or retweeting what other users have already shared. This result and the result of sharing external content within these Social Networks illustrate that the act of sharing results more in trusting the content.
  12. The results once again show that by using these features, participants trust more the content. Moreover, the results also show that by using this functionality, participants trust more the person who is sharing the content rather than the source who created the content. Therefore, the “Like”, “+1” and “ Favourite ” buttons are used to capture the trust for the content and the trust for the person sharing the content.
  13. With this user interaction type, participants trust more the person who created the post. This is because comments or replies might also contain content that might reflect distrust in the content or source. This is illustrated in the results as 37% of the participants trust the content and 24% trust the source whilst commenting or replying. In this study we only focus on how we can capture trust from the act of the interactions. However, it would be interesting as future work to analyse how to capture trust or distrust from the semantics of the comments or replies.
  14. The results show that the participants trust more the person who they are tagging.
  15. These results illustrate that the perception of trust in the other person tagging or mention the user is lower than the perception of trust in the other person being tagged or mentioned by the user.
  16. These results show that all the user interaction types are mostly used in Facebook and Twitter. Hence, these Social Networks are the optimal for capturing trust for these social user interaction types.
  17. These results illustrate that we can therefore correlate trust and the user interactions as follows: The trust for the source who created the content can be captured using (1) the sharing and (2) the re-sharing or retweeting user interactions; The trust for the content can be captured using (1) the sharing, (2) the re-sharing or retweeting; and (3) the “like” or “+1” or “ favourite ” user interactions; and The trust for the user requesting personal information (i.e. the person) can be captured using (1) the “like” or “+1” or favourite; (2) the comments or replies; (3) tags or mentions and (4) tagged or mentioned user interactions.
  18. The user’s subjective trust value for the source can therefore be calculated as the weighted average of all the shares and re-shares of content related to the source weighted by the trust of users either directly connected to the user or indirectly connected through other users that have shared and re-shared any content related to the source.
  19. The user’s subjective trust value for the content can therefore be calculated as the weighted average of all the shares; re-shares or retweets; likes, +1s and favourites of the content; weighted by the trust of users either directly connected to the user or indirectly connected through other users that have shared, re-shared, liked, +1 and favourite the same content.
  20. The user’s subjective trust value for the requester can therefore be calculated as the relationship between the sum of interactions consisting of: the “likes”, “+1s” or “ favourites ” of the content related to the user and the requester; the comments or replies between the user and the requester; the tags of or tagged by the user and the requester; and the total sum of all the interactions of the user.
