Noura Alomar and Wea\'am Alrashed

Locating missing items is a challenging problem that people face frequently. This paper proposes a system that attempts to solve this problem by taking the advantage of the interactions among people in online social media. Locate it! Is an online social community for connecting individuals with lost items with people who found these items. The communication in this Arabic social network is based on the contribution of individuals in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. After reporting the lost/found items by the users, they can ask the system to retrieve matches from the database. As a result, this research study discusses the analysis and design of Locate it! System and concludes by summarizing the paper; future improvements are also discussed.

Keywords: Location management, Lost and Found, Localization, community-oriented system, Online Social Network, Web-based system.
