In this paper the role of electronic cigarette (e-cigarette) is considered in context of social networking and internet based help for smoking cessation or reduction in smoking behavior. Electronic cigarette can be a good conversation starter and interaction device. Its interestingness can be used for social network building and thus using virtual communities (e.g. Facebook, Twitter etc.) to exchange experiences and to support each other. A framework of social network interaction through interact function (i-function) of electronic cigarette is presented which enables two e-cigarette users to immediate interact when they are in close range. The framework also presents a functional possibility of reflecting people’s emotion on social network websites.
