New social networks are born each day, at a formal conference, at informal social gathering, at family reunions etc. Internet has already been playing an important role in modern way of socialising. But it is still not the optimal way of interaction as one has to be very active updating profiles. With the easy access to mobile devices, modern technologies have now started to adopt to new ways of socialising. mobile devices accompany their users almost all the time, they can record and observe their users behavior as well as gather information about their social circle. Therefore, they can help users to get information from contacts, that they probably not even know. In this paper we put our efforts towards the initial design of an architecture that will sniff for information around the user's surrounding, leveraging useful answers on their demand.
