LASS: Local-Activity and Social-Similarity Based Data Forwarding in Mobile Social Networks
In this paper, the authors aim to design efficient data forwarding schemes based on social similarity for Mobile Social Networks (MSNs) without infrastructure support. Diverse definitions of social similarity, acting as the criteria of relay selection, produce various forwarding schemes; and the appropriateness and practicality of definitions determine the performance of the schemes indeed. A popular definition has recently been proven to be more efficient than other existing ones, i.e., the more common interests between two nodes, the larger social similarity between them.
