Buffer Management in Mobile Social Networks

Abstract—A mobile social network (MSN) is defined as a mobile network that uses social relationships to determine node communication. There has been extensive research on routing protocols for MSNs. These protocols assume cooperating nodes carry messages to the destination nodes. Node cooperation may be limited due to buffer concerns. Thus, buffer management strategy is proposed here for MSN routing protocols. Performance results are presented which show that this approach leads to improve the probability of delivery.

Index Terms—Buffer management technique, delivery probability, mobile social network, node cooperation.
