The mobile apps industry has a huge potential and is experiencing strong growth rates. The use of this kind of apps is largely linked to that of social networks, but, in this era of explosive growth in the volume of information and the variety of resources, filtering the knowledge available is becoming increasingly challenging for the end user. The innovative SOCAM project aims at developing an open-source operating system for mobile devices. This OS will include a module for the analysis of social networks, aimed at feeding app recommendation engines. This tool will enable users to identify the apps that are best suited to their needs or preferences.

Since the boom of the “World Wide Web” and up until recently, multimedia consumption over the Internet followed a very simple model. A user would use his PC to connect to a server and browse or download the available content from that same server. The last few years, emerging new technologies and devices have altered this traditional scheme of media discovery and delivery. The gigantic growth in popularity of Online Social Networks (OSNs), Content Distribution Networks (CDNs), video sharing websites, hand-held devices with multimedia capabilities and access to fast 4G/3G networks and finally peer 2 peer applications have shape-shifted the old centralized media dissemination model to a more distributed one, that often makes heavy use of wireless technologies.

The increasingly widespread use of smartphones capable of delivering audio and video streaming has caused an exponential growth in the volume of traffic carried through mobile networks. This tendency will increase more strongly in the future, with forecasts that anticipate a hundred-fold increase in traffic by 2020. For the purpose of finding viable solutions to cope with this challenge, Institute IMDEA Networks is coordinating the iJOIN* European project.
