In Opportunistic Networks (OppNets), mobile contrivances transmit messages by exploiting the direct contacts, without the desideratum of a terminus-to-end infrastructure. Node mobility and culminate-to-end disconnections in Disruption Tolerant Networks (DTNs) greatly impair the efficacy of data forwarding. Although convivial-predicated approaches can address the quandary, most subsisting solutions only fixate on forwarding data to a single destination. In this paper, a comparative survey of routing and data dissemination issues in opportunistic MSNs with fixate on MSN characteristics, human mobility model, dynamic community detection methods and outing and data dissemination protocols are elaborated.
