Location-based Timely Cooperation over Social Private Network
The increasing use of online social networks (OSNs) in emergency situations shows us a promising future of human cooperation through OSNs. Despite this intense interest, a number of fundamental limitations still exist, such as lack of appropriate conceptual models and limitations on cooperation methods and shareable resources. To address existing limitations, we propose Whistle – a cooperation framework for OSN users which can dynamically organize an emergency community with nearby users and guarantee unrestricted cooperation and resource sharing by leveraging the Jitsi communicator and the SocialVPN. To test the feasibility and applicability of Whistle, we present an implemented prototype and demonstrate its applicability to an example use case.
