The research areas of mobile technologies, social networking and mobile services applications are receiving wide interest from private and public companies as well as from academic and research institutions. The mobile and networking technologies, the new generation of wireless local area networks and ad hoc networks are devoted to playing an important role in many areas of social activities, predominantly in those areas where having the right data at the right time is a mission-critical issue. Mobile and networking technologies for social applications serve groups of people ”on the move”, sharing activities and/or interests; in particular these technologies involve geographically distributed groups who are collaborating on some task in a shared context or independently from their location. By their real nature, mobile technologies can be considered multidisciplinary technologies involving social aspects; indeed, they often involve personal, group and ubiquitous issues, supporting inter-personal connections and involving human-technology interaction in different, and dispersed, contexts. Mobile technologies also play an essential role in personalizing working and interaction contexts, while supporting experimentation and innovation, and the advancement of the field is fundamental for developing social networking. Moreover, mobile technologies are the base for Collaborative Distributed Virtual Environments (CDVE) enabling geographically distant users to exchange information, communicate and collaborate. A special session of the workshop was organized on them. Social networking technologies bring friends, family members, co-workers and other social communities together. These technologies are convergent, emerging from a variety of applications such as search engines and employee evaluation routines, while running on equally diverse platforms from server clusters to wireless phone networks.
