Web of Social Things: Socially-Influenced Interaction Modeling

Proceedings of the 15th International Conference on Advances in Mobile Computing & Multimedia
In addition to seamless connectedness and smartness, the objects in Internet of Things (IoT) are expected to have social capabilities. In literature, these objects are named as "social objects". In this paper, an intuitive paradigm of social interactions between these objects is argued and model. The purpose of the model is to analyze the impact of social-like capabilities on the interaction pattern of social objects in a peer-to-peer resource sharing scenario. Adopting an agent-based modeling method and simulation, a comparative study of competitive vs. cooperative behavior of peers is demonstrated. The simulation results reveal that the social capabilities of peers imparts a significant increase in the quality of interactions between social objects. Typically, the nature of underlying structure of network connectivity has a profound impact. The small-world network is not only closer to the social paradigm that surround us, but also, competes with an unbounded network; such as a mesh network.
