Mobile ad-hoc social networks (MASNs) have been the subject of several research studies over the past two decades. They allow stations located in a small geographical area to be connected without the need for a network infrastructure and offer them the possibility to communicate any time anywhere. To communicate, stations regularly broadcast their interests in the form of keywords. Stations with a high degree of similarity among their keywords can communicate with each other. However, the coverage of MASNs is limited to a small geographical area, due to the limited communication range of mobile ad-hoc networks (MANET) stations. In this paper, we present an architecture and implementation of hybrid mobile ad-hoc social networks (MASNs coupled to infrastructure networks) of Android mobile devices for information dissemination. Stations can use the infrastructure network to communicate and rely on the mobile ad-hoc network when the infrastructure is not available.Rather than communicating synchronously as this is the case in the similar works found in the literature, in our approach, the stations communicate using a publish/subscribe communication protocol, which is perfectly suited to this type of network thanks to the decoupling in time and space it provides.
