Source: University of Minho
Connectivity and trust within social networks have been exploited to build applications on top of these networks, including information dissemination, Sybil defenses, and anonymous communication systems. In these networks, and for such applications, connectivity ensures good performance of applications while trust is assumed to always hold, so as collaboration and good behavior are always guaranteed. In this paper, the authors study the impact of differential behavior of users on performance in typical social network-based information dissemination applications.
