This chapter elaborates on energy usage optimization issues by exploiting a resource offloading process based on a social-oriented mobile cloud scheme. The adoption of the proposed scheme enables for increasing the reliability in services provision to the mobile users by guaranteeing sufficient resources for the mobile application execution. More specifically, this chapter describes the process to improve the energy consumption of the mobile devices through the exploitation of a social-oriented model and a cooperative partial process offloading scheme. This research approach exploits social centrality, as the connectivity model for the resource offloading, among the interconnected mobile devices to increase the energy usage efficiency, the mobile nodes availability, as well as the process of execution reliability. The proposed scheme is thoroughly evaluated to define the validity and the efficiency for the energy conservation increase of future mobile computing devices.
