Agent-based modeling and simulation (ABMS) is a new approach to modeling systems comprised of autonomous interacting agents. It promises to have an important role in research and education. Some researchers have contended that ABMS "is a third way of doing science". ABMS has been applied to a wide range of research in a varied number of complex domain problems. Social simulation is playing an increasingly important role in today's interconnected society. In this paper we apply agent based modeling and simulation to investigate the impact of Goldbaum's innovative "Follow the Leader" in social networks in web services selection using a recommender system that guides a user to select the best service that matches his requirements and preferences. We test and evaluate several customers' behaviors scenarios using our simulation tool "SSSS: Service Selection Simulation Studio". ©2009 IEEE.
