Abstract. In recent years, middleware for social mobile networking has attracted the attention of academia, causing the design and development of various approaches by researchers. This type of middleware facilitates and makes more efficient the development process of mobile social networking applications. Furthermore, middleware solutions also abstract the communication process with other applications, allowing the acquisition, persistence and reuse of social context information and location of users, besides providing an API so that developers can access this information quickly and build new social applications. With a view to supporting this new trend of research, in this paper we propose a middleware architecture for mobile social networking called My-Direct which will make use of Wi-Fi Direct as a solution to improve the connectivity between the nodes of the social network. Along with My-Direct also created an intelligent mechanism for the management of mobile resources in order to reduce energy consumption.
