Modeling Deceptive Action in Virtual Communities

Yi Hu, Brajendra Panda

Abstract

Trust and shared interest are the building blocks for most relationships in human society. A deceptive action and the associated risks can affect many people. Although trust relationship in virtual communities can be built up more quickly and easily, it is more fragile. This research concentrates on analyzing the Information Quality in the open rating systems; especially studying the way deceptive data spread in virtual communities. In this paper, we have proposed several novel ideas on assessing deceptive actions and how the structure of the virtual community affects the information flow among subjects in the web of trust. Furthermore, our experiments illustrate how deceptive data would spread and to what extent the deceptive data would affect subjects in virtual communities.
