View Full Version : Social Network - UPDATED

09-29-2011, 07:12 PM

Me and a Friend are discussing creating a Social Networking site. We know little HTML, but I do have a HTML book at hand. Obviously it will require MySQL, PHP etc. For now though my role is to get the front page done. With login and register boxes. We have not yet come up with a name, as we will do this last. We are looking for many people to help us create a new better Social Networking site. To start with it'll be simple but we want to go viral and better than Facebook. We need lots of people behind us, and if you're interested and you think you can be of help in any way at all then let me know by commenting / posting below. I also need some help with the front page, and will need help along the way. Everyone will be accepted, provided that you're trustworthy and can prove you can do some sort of coding to make this good. We're looking to have a social network where you can add others, message, chat etc. Similar to Facebook, but with a few differences too. I will reply ASAP to anyone who comments as we want to get the ball rolling. So if you're interested, post below! Payment WON'T be available as this will be a hobby - if it becomes big enough we will pay everyone who has worked on the project! Help is required to get this to happen. If you feel you could help in ANY way comment!! We want to get this to happen. The front page is being created, but need people to help make Register Forms etc

People are unlikely to do this for free especially professional developers. You should learn some coding yourself and get stuck in otherwise anyone helping will want shares of your site which means shares of your profit or you will have to pay them now. I suggest doing what facebook did and making something quite basic and building on it. That's what I am doing now for my social network. Making it myself with coding help when I need it on the forums and then as I get better at coding I can make it better :)

Better yet, download the free source code from Diaspora:


Not to rain on your idea or anything but Diaspora have received millions of dollars of funding and they are yet to make a dent in Facebook's domination. How are you going to beat FB when it's a hobby?
