Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


In online communication, it is often difficult to judge if an unknown person is competent, telling the truth or interested in honestly helping others. This leads to mistrust and social phenomena like echo chambers and misinformation campaigns. Creating transparency by introducing contributive social capital (CSC), a metric encompassing the competence, trustworthiness, and social responsibility of a user, could alleviate this problem. We investigate the utility of social capital market systems as information sources for the assessment of CSC.
