AssistMe: A Location-Based Social Network for Assistance

Wassim Benhallam, Ali El Ouafiq, Ayoub Khobalatte, and Mohamed Riduan Abid
Abstract—Theomnipresence of mobile phones and their exponential growth in terms of usage have challenged the way we traditionally use information technology and communication tools. The recent success of social networks is an instance of such a new way of information usage. However, there is still plenty of room for bridging social networks and mobile computing to provide rich context and location aware services. In this paper, we propose AssistMe* (aka, JabekLah), a novel mobile application for social networking using smart phones. It is a help-based community thatallows users to ask for virtually any type of assistance. AssistMe is based on the use of modern mobile technologies (e.g.iOS, Android, Cloud Computing, RESTful, GPS, text messaging, 3G)and consists of two separate mobile applications as well as a back-office server deployed in the Cloud in order to ensure reliability, scalability, performance, and security of the platform.

Index Terms—Social network, mobile services, cloud, iOS, android.
