O'Reilly in 2004, is the idea of mutually maximizing collective intelligence and
added value for each participant by dynamic information sharing and creation.
Current trend sbows that the next big thing in OSN is Location-based Social
Networking (LBSN) which is the composite of OSN and Location-based Service

to explore what are the key technologies of LBSN to support the development of
neighbourhoods where residents feel a sense of connection to their local community
and ability to engage in that community. Problems and opportunities identified are:
I) Lack of research has been done to nnderstand Malaysian online social behavior in
the context of cities & neighbourhood development, 2) Modem societies are said to
lives in a condition of individualism and 3) Malaysia has strong networked
community and there are a number of social Application Programming Interface
(API) which provide a great opportunities for developers to create an application
which can support the idea of smart, liveable and sustainable cities. The objectives of
the research are: 1) To study on Malaysian social behavior in using Location-based
Social Network (LBSN) , motivation for participation and pattern of use, 2) To
identifY and understand key technologies of LBSN, and 3) To design an engaging
LBSN which leverage on key technologies for neighbourhood and cities' sustainable
development. Survey instrument is used as data collection tool to investigate the
Malaysian online social behaviour and gauge their views on civil issues such as
crime in their residential. Interview also is carried out to the owner of existing crime
mapping system to identifY the gaps and opportunities for improvements. This
research discovers that Malaysians are socially active in online community network
and have strong civic conscious to make our neighbourhood works better.
