AbstractMobile social applications have emerged in recent years. They explore social connections among mobile users in a variety of novel scenarios, including friend finding, message routing, and content sharing. However, efficiently supporting resource-demanding delay-sensitive streaming applications on the mobile platform remains a significant challenge. Research on such topics will naturally widen the usage of mobile social applications. The solutions to the challenges will provide suggestion on many related work. It is interesting and valuable to explore the system performance and users’ experience in such scenarios. Furthermore, users’ concern about social network is also significant to develop a mobile social network application. It is important to detect users’ strategies to communicate with others. That influences the network topologies and provides biased connections. The strategy consists of various of aspects, most of which are the user preference and user social attributes. Focusing on this meaningful research field, we study collaborative VoD-type streaming of short videos among small groups of mobile users, so as to effectively exploit their social relationships. Such an application can be practically set in a number of usage scenarios, including streaming of introductory video clips of exhibition items to visitors’ mobile devices, such as in a museum. We analyze users’ behavior strategies based on their social preference and social attributes. We design SMS, an architecture that engineers such Streaming over Mobile Social networks. SMS constructs a collaborative streaming overlay by carefully inspecting social connections among users and infrastructure characteristics of Bluetooth technologies. To improve the performance, we analyze the scatternet structure of Bluetooth technology and propose appropriate scatternet structure in our system. We evaluate our design based on prototype implementation on the Android platform, as well as on a large emulation testbed. The results obtained indicate that we are able to achieve a well-performed streaming system in a mobile social network.
