This chapter deals with MOBILE SOCIAL NETWORK APPLICATIONS GPS-BASED. As a use case we describe a Mobile Application for Android that that gives users the ability to communicate between each other and to display on a map information about important topics like road condition (traffic, checkpoints, car accidents, road work), Facebook events, Facebook Friends’ position and any other event that can happen on a road. The Application can help to reduce traffic and pollution so that it can also be considered a green technology application. The main failure of current Navigation Applications is that traffic information are provided by sensors on the road, but users must pay to access them or must check them on free website. The Application allows the user to have all the information he needs right on his mobile device and, according to Mobile Web 2.0 philosophy, the information are provided by the other Social Network users; an user can report an event that will be shown on other users’ maps. The Application can ask the user for traffic condition if user’s speed is particularly slow and can notify user of new events around him. According to privacy agreement the user can customize every aspect of the Application, including notifies, requests, events visualization on his map and his own visualization on other users’ map.
