Abstract [en]

To address privacy concerns in current online social networks, we previously proposed to use apeer-to-peer infrastructure and encryption, therebyrecreating the features of online social networks ina distributed, provider-less, community-driven, andprivacy-preserving way. Once the functionality is distributed, social networks are no longer dependent onInternet connectivity for every transaction – in contrast to current web-based services. We therefore havethe opportunity to take into account locality, both interms of connectivity by direct exchange between devices, and in terms of content, such as local communityinterests and events. This way, social networking applications can benefit from local storage, connectivity,and delay-tolerant data transfer via social encounters.The local communities, in turn, can benefit from thesocial networking applications enabled by such a system, e.g., by finding neighbors with similar interests.
