Abstract-Mobile terminals provide an increasingly important communication channel in facilitating social connections. Mobile social networking has an enormous potential for us to tap and there is an urgent need to explore new service modes in this area. We have developed a system of social interaction, called Mobile Hunter System, for people to expand their scope of interpersonal relationships not only through the internet but also face-to-face, which makes a difference from the traditional social network systems. People can record their interesting things and share their instant feelings whenever and wherever they want by using this platform. Besides, people can organize a location-based game which provides the chance for people to conduct their social interactions face to face, using their true identities. Usability test result shows that this system is entertaining and is helpful for people to extend the scope of their social network.
