This paper addresses the challenge of design a feasible social-based mechanism to manage wireless mobile connectivity. In a previous work, the authors proposed a methodology to share connectivity experiences among mobile users inside on-line social networks. The aim was explore peoples social circles to enhance their wireless connectivity experiences e.g., QoS metrics such as: throughput, latency and signal quality. In this paper, details of the mashups, between wireless connectivity context data and location-based social media, are provided. They report how this data is handled using complex networks metrics e.g., vertex's strength and centrality degree, to identify high density handover areas, define the mobile users' reputation and to reveal the networks' coverage.
