Personal mobile devices and mobile ad-hoc networks are the technical ingredients to build social networks in mobile environments. We present a framework that leverages social networks in order to obtain a collaborative environment for social applications. The framework provides a flexible means for the specification of collaboration protocols and allows their transparent integration with the application logic. Consequently, the framework supports a clean separation of collaboration and application logic which simplifies the development of social applications.
