Abstract

In this work, we present a model of social network showing non-trivial effects on the dynamics of trust and communication. Our model's results meet the characteristics of a typical social network, such as the limited node degree, assortativeness, clustering and communities formation. Simulations have been run first to present some of the most fundamental relations among the main model's attributes. Next, we focused on the emerging asymmetry with which trust develops within different communities in a network. In particular, we considered categories of nodes differing for their communication profiles and a specific example of bridge between two communities. The results are discussed to provide insights about the dynamic formation of communities based on trust relations. These results are the basis for future works with the aim of better understanding the dynamics of the diffusion of trust and its influence on a growing social network.
