AbstractMany kinds of communication networks, in particular social and opportunistic networks, rely at least partly on on humans to help move data across the network. Human altruistic behavior is an important factor determining the feasibility of such a system. In this paper, we study the impact of different distributions of altruism on the throughput and delay of mobile social communication system. We evaluate the system performance using four experimental human mobility traces with uniform and community-biased traffic patterns. We found that mobile social networks are very robust to the distributions of altruism due to the nature of multiple paths. We further confirm the results by simulations on two popular social network models. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first complete study of the impact of altruism on mobile social networks, including the impact of topologies and traffic patterns.
