Summary Recent developments in sensor networks and cloud computing saw the emergence of a new platform called sensor-clouds. While the proposition of such a platform is to virtualise the management of physical sensor devices, we are seeing novel applications been created based on a new class of social sensors. Social sensors are effectively a human-device combination that sends torrent of data as a result of social interactions and social events. The data generated appear in different formats such as photographs, videos and short text messages. Unlike other sensor devices, social sensors operate on the control of individuals via their mobile devices such as a phone or a laptop. And unlike other sensors that generate data at a constant rate or format, social sensors generate data that are spurious and varied, often in response to events as individual as a dinner outing, or a news announcement of interests to the public. This collective presence of social data creates opportunities for novel applications never experienced before. This paper discusses such applications as a result of utilising social sensors within a sensor-cloud environment. Consequently, the associated research problems are also presented.
