The mobile space is evolving at an astonishing rate with almost 5 billion subscribers in existence. The world is also witnessing an explosion in social web services with more users seeking novel ways of interacting with friends and family. We are interested in the combination of these two exciting research spaces: the social web and the mobile web. We believe that the social mobile web is going to be a highly influential research area in the near future and given the huge growth that both these fields have experienced in recent times we feel that now is an excellent time to discuss this nascent research space.
