We propose a new measurement called geographic community, which provides a bridge between spatial proximity and the social nature of individuals in mobile social network. A novel approach for detecting these geographic communities has been proposed. Through developing a spatial proximity matrix, an improved symmetric nonnegative matrix factorization method (SNMF) is used for detecting these geographic communities. Based on several experimental results, the advantages of this proposed measurement have been presented. Finally, several future directions extending from this new measurement have been discussed.
