Nowadays social network systems become essential ingredients in daily life. Meanwhile, with the booming of smart mobile terminals, mobile social network catches the attention of world. However, most widely used mobile social network systems are focused on perceiving neighbors with common interests, which is just a cross-section of social network. This paper proposes Context-driven Mobile Social Network Discovery System, a system that enables users to have an overall view of nearby social network resources and provides a platform for discovering and recommending nearby social network, taking an active part in social activities and establishing more useful relationships in social communities.
