Most cooperative businesses rely on some form of social networking system to facilitate user profiling and networking of their employees. To facilitate the discovery, matchmaking and networking among the co-workers across the enterprises social recommendation systems are often used. Off-the-shelf nature of these components often makes it hard for individuals to control their exposure as well as their preferences of whom to connect to. To this end, trust based recommenders have been amongst the most popular and demanding solutions due to their advantage of using social trust to generate more accurate suggestions for peers to connect to. They also allow individuals to control their exposure based on explicit trust levels. In this work we have proposed for an enterprise trust-based recommendation system with privacy controls. To generate accurate predictions, a local trust metric is defined between users based on correlations of user's profiled content such as blogging, articles wrote, comments, and likes along with profile information such as organization, region, interests or skills. Privacy metric is defined in such a way that users have full freedom either to hide their data from the recommender or customize their profiles to make them visible only to users with defined level of trustworthy.
