Abstract Many Social Network Services (SNSs) such as Facebook and MySpace rely on a web server that enables the communication between users. As a consequence, SNSs' users require Internet access to participate and interact with their contacts, a service that is not usually available in rural and developing areas. In this paper we introduce Goose, a distributed SNS for tdeveloping regions which provides services including friend tsearching, resource sharing and information seeking. Goose utilises tboth he limited GSM coverage and Delay Tolerant Networking (DTN) technologies running on mobile phones to enable social information texchange between members of a community even when cellular data tcoverage is not available.
