dc.description.abstract Consumer electronics such as cellular phones and portable computers with short-range communication capabilities have enabled the large-scale information dissemination through user mobility and contact, without the assistance of communication infrastructures. In such a new communication paradigm, one challenge is to determine when and how to forward a message to the destination, possibly through a series of third parties. This problem has attracted a lot of attention in the literature lately, with proposals ranging from epidemic to single or multi-copy spray and wait or focus strategies. However most existing work assumed independent or identically distributed mobility. Observing most human mobility and interaction are interest-driven in the real world, in this research, we evaluate the performance of these schemes with an interest-driven mobility model. We further propose to take the user interest into account when determining routing strategies to further improve the performance of these schemes for mobile social networks. Simulation results have demonstrated the efficacy of the interest-aware routing strategies. en_US
