-UrbiFlock is a framework sculpted for the development of //mobile social network applications//: an emerging type of applications that enable spontaneous interactions of people by means of handheld devices (such as their cell phones). These applications exploit the colocation of a number of mobile devices in the proximity to enable social interaction //on the move//. +===== Scripting Mobile Social Applications ===== 
 + 
 +The recent profusion of mobile devices such as the iPhone and Android-powered smartphones has given rise to a new type of applications that exploit the physical location of users to help people interact //on the move//, so-called //mobile social networking// applications. Developing such highly distributed, location-dependent applications is a challenge.

 +In this work we propose Urbiflock, a software platform for the development of mobile social applications running on Android phones interacting via wireless networks. The framework is built on the concept of flocks, a declarative representation of user groups. Flocks represent the user’s social network in terms of intensionally specified sets. To interact and exchange data with these sets the framework incorporates a tuple-based communication library.

 +===== What is Urbiflock? =====
Urbiflock is a Facebook-like application framework for mobile devices. As in Facebook, users that join Urbiflock can meet other users and interact with them. For example users may broadcast announcements to each other, they can browse one another’s profile, launch interactive polls, etc. The framework takes care of managing a user’s social networks, called “flocks”. A flock represents a loosely-defined group of users. A flock can be compared to a Facebook group (for example, a group of your old classmates), but it additionally allows for the definition of groups of proximate flockrs (for example, a group of all of your friends that are currently nearby).
