GENERATING RECOMMENDATIONS THROUGH USE OF A TRUSTED NETWORK
- Described herein are various techniques for automatically generating recommendations for a user based upon a social network of the user. A user can request a recommendation for a particular context, and a social network of the user can be automatically pared to create a subnetwork, wherein individuals in the subnetwork have provided ratings for the particular context and/or contexts that are in some way related to the particular context. The knowledge/ratings of individuals in the subnetwork may then be leveraged to automatically generate the recommendation for the particular context.
