Mobile Social Networking

An Innovative Approach

Editors: Chin, Alvin, Zhang, Daqing (Eds.)

  • Goes beyond social media and networking on mobile devices by investigating forms of social networking made possible only by mobile devices
  • Demonstrate hows mobile social networks can be inferred from physical interactions within the environment and with others
  • Includes real-life data extracted from deploying the applications in the field
  • Challenges the accepted notion of what mobile social networking is within the industry and academic fields

About this book

The use of contextually aware, pervasive, distributed computing, and sensor networks to bridge the gap between the physical and online worlds is the basis of mobile social networking. This book shows how applications can be built to provide mobile social networking, the research issues that need to be solved to enable this vision, and how mobile social networking can be used to provide computational intelligence that will improve daily life.

With contributions from the fields of sociology, computer science, human-computer interaction and design, this book demonstrates how mobile social networks can be inferred from users' physical interactions both with the environment and with others, as well as how users behave around them and how their behavior differs on mobile vs. traditional online social networks.

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“This is a wonderful book, innovative, methodological and pedagogical, scientifically rigorous, important in establishing Mobile Social Networks concepts, simultaneously descriptive and operative. Written by highly reputed contributors from academia and industry, it is an essential reading for graduate students and researchers, business professionals and CTO’s. And also for everyone that aims to give the first step in approaching this theme.” (Manuel Alberto M. Ferreira, International Journal of Latest Trends in Finance and Economic Sciences, Vol. 4 (4), December, 2014)

“The book includes nine chapters that deal with different facets of the usual mobile social network life cycle: discovery, connection, interaction, and organization. … This volume may be a useful supplement to help students and some mobile social network architects identify or address specific features to be deployed.” (L.-F. Pau, Computing Reviews, August, 2014)
