Trust is Critical to your Sharing Site success
Weak trust between members is a major barrier to adoption on your rapidly growing sharing site. Peer-to-peer networks are, by definition, marketplaces of strangers. A trust system gives your users confidence to make better decisions in their peer-to-peer transactions.
Many sharing sites have peer feedback and trust features built from scratch. While internal peer feedback systems are relevant and useful in the context of that community, it can take a prohibitively long time to get critical mass of customer feedback like that on eBay.
Studies show that online businesses using external badges like Truste, Macafee, and VeriSign enjoy much higher user engagement. The ultimate goal of a successful peer-to-peer site is to increase users’ engagement with each other— so empowering users to easily and quickly show trustworthiness is a huge win for your site.
