In the recent trend cloud computing is a new business model and cloud computing architecture is a advance topic. With the increasingly ubiquitous nature of social networks and cloud computing users are starting to explore new ways to interact with and exploit these developing paradigms. Social network are used to reflect real world relationship that allow users to share information and form connection between one another. The structure of a social network is essentially a dynamic virtual organization with inherent trust relationship between friends. This paper presents a review of cloud computing architecture for social computing. The architecture propose leveraging the pre established trust formed through friends relationship within a social network to form a dynamic social cloud enabling friends to share resources within the context of a social network.
