Sharing Contacts Based on Social Networks

People keep their contacts, such as email addresses and phone numbers, in their computer address books and cell phones. Unless someone asks you for a contact, you probably don�t share the information. Is there a way to share this personal information that will benefit people in the same social circles? This research looks for opportunities to utilize and share contacts, based on user-defined contact groups, through P2P and Group2Group protocols on wireless/Internet networks.
