Table 10 Mobility pattern

From: Content distribution and protocol design issue for mobile social networks: a survey

Publication Proposed algorithm Mobility patterns
[92] Uses time and contact duration of a social encounters for predicting the mobility pattern in the MSN for efficient content distribution Mobility pattern can be predicted for a given period for the time depending upon time and contact duration
[93] An efficient message routing (called, “SocialCast”) is presented for publish/subscribe network for content distribution using colocation and movement patterns of the users The colocation metric together with mobility pattern is used to predict the availability of forwarding nodes
[94] Introduction an algorithm for directing an unconnected user using location-based service in the MSN Attraction force function, which defines the attraction between nodes, is used
[95] Uses underlying online social network services for exploding mobility behaviour to enhance the performance of the MSN Uses link traces from an online social network
