P2P applications have been seen as one of the most elegant and simple Web applications which stirred a lot of controversy as they were a vehicle for many Web activities which were and are not legal. The P2P technology has been applied to many domains, from applications spanning the space of music downloading to communication system management etc. The grid as a middleware has raised P2P technology to the level of distributed computing. A series of P2P tools have been devised for the design, development and deployment of network based computing. Despite their spread, there are many open issues such as the lack of any centralized control or hierarchical organization. In this paper, a new hybrid architecture in which a P2P solution based on SIP a server to server connectivity on demand. The above serves as the central axis of a platform for media collaboration on the cloud. It is shown that using the new collaborative workspace on the cloud architecture different social networks in can be linked in a peer-to-peer manner. The security issues do not make the subject of this paper. A proof of concept, a use case scenario, and results obtained from its usage in a test environment are given at the end of the paper.
