This paper presents the new strategy for smooth content distribution in the mobile social network. We proposed a new method, hybrid mobile social network architecture scheme considered as one node of a social community called social super node with higher capacity provides the services of content distribution. We proposed methods and techniques that are introduced to set the criteria to select a social super node (SSN). The simulation results are carried out to measure the correctness of the network performance of the proposed method. These results indicate that the accessing of those content of nearby social super node instead of the content provider is used to improve overall network performance in terms of content end-to-end delays, delivery ratio, throughput, and cost.
