The disabled have settled down as smart phone users in this age as users of these phones have exponentially increased in recent years. The theme of this paper is how to create a better world using the information that people want to exchange with each other between the disabled and the general population. On the other hand, the main goal is to provide the information that they need from each other which can be displayed on the map in real-time. We propose a new location-based SNS application for the physically disabled population having three major characteristics of this application to be considered as follows: One uses Social Networking Service (SNS) by constructing a friend matching system such as Face book and Twitter, which are the most widely-used SNS in the world, the general population registers real-time information of a specific location on the map for the physically disabled population using SNS. This information with photos and messages is given and evaluated by users, and this system makes it easier to see that the menu in the GUI was implemented.
