Mobile Social Networks

Mobile social-networking services enable individuals to connect to their social communities with a mobile device, through one or more available mobile channels. Members share experiences, interests, opinions, presence information and personal content through their mobile devices. Mobile adds new capabilities to social networking, such as location-related services (e.g., check-in) and new visualization mechanisms (e.g., augmented reality showing where friends are).
