Abstract Event notification based on the publish-subscribe paradigm provides a powerful abstraction for interactions based on a demand-supply pattern. As such, they might become the software backbone for new kinds of end-user services, especially tailored to the needs of people living in and around urban areas. In this paper we propose the integration of a publish-subscribe system into popular social networks so that the matching of demand and supply concerning various aspects of individual and social needs can take advantage of the existing infrastructures and user communities characterizing the social networks themselves.
