The rapid development of social media exacerbates the infor- mation overload and credibility problems. Trust, providing information about with whom we can trust to share infor- mation and from whom we can accept information, plays an important role in helping users collect relevant and reliable information in social media. Trust has become a research topic of increasing importance and of practical significance. In this tutorial, we illustrate properties and representation models of trust, elucidate trust measurements with represen- Tative algorithms, and demonstrate real-world applications where trust is explicitly used. As a new dimension of the trust study, we discuss the concept of distrust and its roles in trust measurements and applications.
