In this paper we show how we can use social networks to bootstrap a social overlay network. This overlay network is different from others, in the sense that it enables participants to share services on a personal basis, unlike other overlay networks that provide a single service for all peers. Since the overlay network is not supposed to have central servers for managing a single service, its bootstrap and the direct communication among pairs of participants is challenging. However, the actual social networks, such as Twitter, Facebook and Google+ already provide an API that enables participants to exchange direct messages, which will be the basis of our bootstrap mechanism.
