Abstract

This paper proposes two models for simulating belief update in social networks in cases where certain beliefs might be considered to be competing. The proposed models represent different attitudes of people towards the perceived conflict between beliefs. Computer simulations show that the first model usually divides the community into several distinct groups with one of the beliefs being rejected, while the second model tends to make the network achieve consensus for both beliefs with independent network update and maintain diversity on both beliefs with joint network update.
