Merge with "Mesh networking"?
This is opinion /essay / personal opinion. Therefore I am moving to Talk unless someone can provide a good justification for re-adding to the main article.
A Mobile ad hoc social network is longer and more technical term than “smart mob”. In his book Smart Mobs Howard Rheingold talks about social implications of technology and mobile ad hoc social networks.
A Mobile ad hoc social network is a new social form developed thanks to various combinations of computation, communication, and reputation and location awareness. The mobile aspect is represented by mobile phones and SMS. Ad hoc means that people by texting to particular individuals are creating social circles. This leads us to conclude that social network means that every individual in the smart mob is a “node” with social links to other individuals. Therefore nodes and links are making basics elements of communication networks, in this case mobile ad hoc social network.
Mobile ad hoc technology gives us opportunity for ad hoc meetings, mobile patient monitoring, and distribution command and control systems. Devices like mobile phones, PDA’s and laptops have become the big part of our daily life and they are taking significant part in our every day social interactions with people. We could say that mobile ad hoc social network is ultimate peer to peer system.

MANETs Circa 2015?
Does this article purport to predict the future?
Also the 500BC reference is correctly sourced, but standing alone as a single sentence in an article about a computer networking without any clarification is a bit misleading. 2001:480:10:160:5653:EDFF:FE37:606A (talk) 22:49, 6 June 2014 (UTC)
