    People tend to form social networks within specific geographical areas. This is motivated by the fact that the geographical locality corresponds generally to common interests and opportunities offered by the people active in the area (e.g., students of a university could be interested to buy or sell text books adopted for a specific course, to share notes, or just to meet together to play basketball). Cellular phones and more in general mobile devices are currently widely used and represent a big opportunity to support social communities. We present an application of multi-agent systems accessible via mobile devices (cellular phones and PDAs), where Bluetooth technology has been adopted to reflect users locality. We illustrate an implemented prototype of the proposed architecture and we discuss the opportunities offered by the system.
