Trust model is a very important model in social networking and recommendation technology. The trust relationship between the users can reflect the relation in the real life in a better performance than the similarity, but this kind of trust model lose sight of the importance of time effect, so this article pay attention to the research on time effect in trust model and proposed an improved trust model based on time effect. At last we choose appropriate data set to prove the superiority of the proposed improved trust model.
