Online Social Networks

This special issue of Computer Communications is devoted to Online Social Networks (OSN). OSN are one of the most disruptive communication platforms of the last 15 years. Nowadays, most people use OSN regularly, as a normal facet of their daily lives. Moreover, the widespread diffusion of mobile personal devices (smartphones and tablets) is boosting the use of OSN services in mobility. The statistics about these facts are just impressive.
