Recommender systems have been widely used in information filtering. However the existing recommendation methods do not work effectively in the situations when a group of people want to share information and make recommendations within a social network. In this paper we propose a personal-hosting web services architecture ph-REST for social network based recommendation, in which every user is represented by a dedicated RESTful web services engine that collaborates with others over a social structure formed by co-peers with common interests. The proposed architecture explores the potential of applying service and Cloud computing to personal and social information sharing and assimilation.
