    New project doubts...


    I am working in a project witch involves de develop of a Social network (similar to facebook but obviously not the same).
    Initially the amount of users would be small (>5000) but if everything goes as expected could be increased to 100.000 or more.

    I am starting to analyze how to do it…maybe someone here can help me…

    First, from the client side I was thinking in HTML5/CSS3 (Responsive design etc) just to assure is correctly viewed in mobiles, tablets etc (Better than making one for desktops and one for mobile users)…

    From server side I am not sure…maybe do everything ourselves new (Outsourcing the design and with 2 developers in the team, 6/8 Months not using CMS, coding in PHP/MySQL) but maybe using a php framework(Synphony or wathever).
    Here would you recommend to start with a CMS (social engine, Drupal etc)? Would it be enough to that amount of users? Any good framework to develop a social network

    Any more suggestion would be appreciated…

    Thanks in advance

    Check out the available social network frameworks out there. I googled the term and immediately found this promising one:


    I'm not endorsing it, I know nothing about it; I'm sharing the link only as an example of what you might find and use as a foundation for your project. No sense in re-inventing the wheel.
