This paper describes a new approach to local messaging. Our application combines passive monitoring for smart phones and cloud based messaging for mobile OS (operational system). Passive monitoring can determine the location of mobile subscribers (mobile phones, actually) without the active participation of the users. Mobile users do not need to mark own location on social networks (check-in), they do not need to run on their phones the location track applications. In the same time, Cloud Messaging allows interested parties to directly deliver their information to mobile users who find themselves near a selected point. This is the main content of the service - how to combine the monitoring and notifications.

This paper discusses several practical use cases for deploying network proximity in mobile services. Our research presents here mobile services oriented for either discovering new data for mobile subscribers or for delivering some customized information to them. All applications share the same approach and use the common platform, based on the Wi-Fi proximity. The typical deployment areas for our approach are context-aware services and ubiquitous computing applications. Our own examples include proximity marketing as the model use case.

This paper describes a new model for local messaging based on the network proximity. We present a novelty mobile mashup which combines Wi-Fi proximity measurements with Cloud Messaging. Our mobile mashup combines passive monitoring for smart phones and cloud based messaging for mobile operational systems. Passive monitoring can determine the location of mobile subscribers (mobile phones, actually) without the active participation of mobile users. This paper describes how to combine the passive monitoring and notifications.

Authors report on a new kind of group conversation on Twitter they call a group chat. These chats are periodic, synchronized group conversations focused on specific topics and they exist at a massive scale. The groups and the members of these groups are not explicitly known. Rather, members agree on a hashtag and a meeting time to discuss a subject of interest.
Group chats are similar to virtual communities in that the primary venue for communicating is online. As with other communities, the purpose is to exchange knowledge, to share experiences, to provide empathy and generally feel part of a community. Also, groups chats can be sprawled out geographically and thus they en- able a way to meet that would otherwise be difficult or impossible. However, they differ from virtual communities in that they use the Twitter platform as a real-time mechanism to communicate in groups. The real-time nature of these conversations imparts a live feeling that is hard to duplicate in other online venues such as forums. Another key difference is that these groups are implicit and therefore not easily discoverable.
In this connection we would like to point attention to our Twicus application. Actually, this application creates Group Chats on Twitter. One of the obvious applied areas is the second screen application for discussing TV show.

Discussion here is a flow of messages (statuses) with some hash tag. Mashup lets users add a special status for the own timeline during the first visit. It is like check-in. This check-in record contains hash tag for the discussion. So, user can switch to search right with one click right from your new post. Additionally, user's timeline will keep check-in record (read - description to hashtag), so it is easy to return back to that discussion. For subsequent visits mashup simply redirects user to Twitter search page for the given hash tag.
You can set your own parameters for the discussion. Basic URL proceeds the following parameters:
tag - tag for discussion
title - explanation for your discussion
checkin - check-in message to be published in user's timeline
via - Optional. Twitter's account to follow for the check-in message
init - Optional. 0 value lets you skip an initial screen. Default value is 1.
For example: http://twicus.linkstore.ru?tag=mytag
Such way you can add links to your site/blog: 'Discuss in Twitter'
How it could be used? For example, second screen application for social TV.

The Berg Cloud dev kit includes two small circuit boards and microcontrollers with access to a set of Web APIs, allowing the microcontroller to send and receive data from Internet applications. Another device in the kit, called a Bridge, provides wireless connectivity, and a built-in mobile user interface called Remote can access, manage, and control the system via iPhone, Android, or Windows Phone devices." - from MIT review
It is a time for Twitter bots. In this connection check out again our T411 service. It is our old idea about using Twitter as a transport layer for applications. You can see some our publications about twitter bots
