During the last years progress in Web search engines has been made to the point that relevant information can be reached easily most of the time. However very little empirical research has been carried to study Web search in highly dynamic social network environments composed of mobile devices. The aim of this work was therefore to investigate novel approaches that took advantage of the social network environment inherent to mobile peer-to-peer paradigm. The work focused mainly on the development of a prototype for mobile search concept. The prototype was built on top of Drupal content site management system. This study suggests that the methods presented can be a complement to traditional Web search engines.
