Abstract: Social networks enables people to communicate and interact with each other. With the increasing usage of social network platform, we are going to develop a mechanism for allocating resources effectively within a social network . It will be easier for users to share their own services, resources and data via social networks. In this paper, we present a social networking site leveraging cloud infrastructure. Users in this site can share resources to their peers through cloud. This work illustrate how social networks and cloud computing can be effectively utilized for allocating resources in the presence of user sharing preferences. We investigate, via simulation, how resources can be effectively allocated within a social community. There are several design decisions that have to be addressed; the interaction of users in the platform, mechanism to exchange resources, the underlying infrastructure etc
