The social network formed by people is one of the key applications of Delay-Tolerant Network (DTN). Owing to its intermittent connectivity and unique human mobility patterns, how to transmit data in an effective way is a challenging problem for the social network. In this paper, we propose the idea of Trip History Model (THM) which establishes a model on a single person's mobility, and then a Spatial and Temporal Correlations-Based Routing Algorithm (STC) is proposed. In STC, the node delivery
