In this paper, the authors aim to intend efficient data forwarding technique based on social similarity in case of Mobile Social Networks (MSNs). Mobile Social Network (MSN) with miscellaneous connectivity characteristics is a grouping of opportunistic network. Since the major difficulty of data forwarding is the mobile ad hoc network and also opportunistic part, techniques intended for opportunistic networks are normally used to forward data/message in MSNs. Different definitions of social similarity, acting as the criteria of relay selection, create various forwarding techniques; and the appropriateness and expediency of definitions establish the presentation of the system indeed.
