Trust is a promising research topic for social networks, since it is a basic component of our real-world social life. Yet, the transfer of the multi-facetted concept of trust to virtual social networks is an open challenge. In this paper we provide a survey and classification of established and upcoming trust systems, focusing on trust models. We introduce a set of criteria as basis of our analysis and show strengths and short-comings of the different approaches.
