Rendezvous is a common life event to bring people together for social interaction. The previous research on rendezvous coordination considers location-specific information but seldom takes into account the mutual social influence of individual attendees in the coordination process. By considering contextual information and social relationship among attendees, this study presents a new mobile application, called SocialCRC, which identifies a more satisfactory rendezvous point. This study conducts comprehensive evaluations on SocialCRC. Results indicate that SocialCRC offers satisfactory results for the most socially influential person while not significantly diminishing the satisfaction of the least socially influential person involved in the coordination process.
