Anytime, anywhere social computing requires several support mechanisms and tools, including location and proximity systems, expressive representation models of physical place and user characteristics, and effective social-matching algorithms. Anytime, anywhere social-network computing also requires shared and interoperable vocabularies for modeling location and entity characteristics. Current solutions tend to address only a subset of these issues. We believe that the success of anytime, anywhere social computing depends on middleware solutions that separate social-network management concerns from application requirements. Our middleware solution, the socially aware and mobile architecture (SAMOA), integrates a set of common management facilities for personalizing location-dependent social networks, and for propagating social networks' visibility up to the application level.
