This paper explores the architecture and implementation details of SCOPE platform. SCOPE is our prototype for spontaneous P2P social networking. It provides customized social networking application for local use cases. Below the network level, SCOPE relies on 802.11 ad-hoc mode and needs no infrastructure. SCOPE follows the hierarchical P2P model. Some nodes with higher computing capability become super-nodes. super-nodes form an overlay and provide the distributed data management system for the P2P social network. Client nodes (CNs) connect to super-nodes and rely on them for sharing their contents or accessing to the shared information. We have developed What's UP as our client agent tool which provide a vast range of applications from simple text/link sharing to P2P IP Telephony.
