Mobile social network (MSN) is a typical social network where one ormore individuals of similar interests or commonalities, conversingand connecting with one another using the mobile phone. In this paper we analyze a large-scale MSN on real mobile phone call data. The main contributions of our works can be summarized as three-fold: firstly, a large-scale MSN is constructed from the mobile phone calllogs provided by a mobile phone carrier in China; secondly, based on the analysis of the common features of networks, we confirm that the MSN is a typical scale-free network and has some small-world phenomenons; lastly, different form traditional social networkanalysis, properties of the actors, such as gender and age, have been introduced into our analysis with some interesting findingabout human behavior, for example: the middle-age people are moreactive than the young and old people, and the female is unexpectedlymore active than the male at old age.
