  • facebook, twitter and other social networking sites are for Public Cloud. One of the main reasons that people think for public Cloud Hosting is its more secure than a private cloud.

  • Hi,

    what do you understand under the term 'social cloud'? In general it is hard to say if a platform running on a cloud platform, but for Twitter and Facebook it is commonly known. Both are running on a cloud platform and because it is accessible from outside of these organization they can be called public cloud, but most of that are vague terms because of the different definitions of the cloud platforms (and the term 'cloud' itself).
