In recent past Social networks has experienced a colossal interest by people. The present existing social networks are a kind of pre-built networks based on server oriented architecture and also the users of the social network have to work following a pre-registration activity. Social networking over Mobile Ad-hoc Networks (MANETs) has gained a lot of research attention mainly due to its suppleness and infrastructure-less architecture. Instead of pre-established social networks/ groups the ad-hoc opportunistic connections between the mobile nodes in MANETs can be used to construct a social network. The application on MANETs experience network partitions due to the nodes resource constraints or mobility affecting/disrupting the data availability and accessibility. Data replication has been used as one of the technique in the distributed systems to improve the system performance. In this paper a replica allocation method is proposed with an objective to avoid unavailability or loss in case of social network partition and reduce the data transmission path length. The proposed work is based on the social relationships like similar interests and also the data properties. The replication method provides a better load balance and also increases the data availability even in the case of partitioned networks. The method is simulated using NS2 and evaluation results verify the effectiveness.
