Abstract: The present system fails to utilize the trust in the social network which is based on Peer to Peer (P2P) file sharing systems. To overcome this issue, a trust management system named “Social Link” is used to utilize the social network and predefined transaction links. The Social Link manages the novel weighted transactions and networks. The link is constructed using the historical file transaction. Two friends can share their files and increased trust can be guaranteed with the help of Social Link. The Networkof Weighted Transaction (NWT) can be calculating the successful transaction and it finds trust over the client on server. By this process, Social Link will reduce transaction misbehaving, avoids free riding and promotes nodes to transact data files to non friends. Whitewashing and collision can also be rectified using Social Links.
