  1. Hi.

    I have been just wondering if you have any article talking about what makes facebook the top social networking website.

    Thanks and Merry Christmas.

  2. I was thinking of starting an social network website with an annual membership charge. Can I make good money this way? Possibly at minimum 6 figure income?

  3. Dear Yahoo! Members,

    I have recently began an investment with a few partners, and we have invested in a high grade server that we will be starting a hosting business with.

    A side project of mine involves the creation of a social network system similar to facebook.com. I am in the process of seeking Angel Investors, and is in initial talks with a developer on getting a working prototype online and working.

    Question is, the reality of social networking websites is that revenue strictly pretty much comes from advertising, and many of these sites, age, and eventually die (though I haven’t seen any big ones really flop yet).

    I do have a creative idea to get advertising out the door, however, I really wouldn’t know where to start on how to get this idea successfully pitched. As some have said, many of these websites eventually just hope to get bought out to earn a buck, such as Youtube.com.

    Please lend me some advice on what I need in my business plan, as well as general advice.

  4. Pls give list of as many as possible and the best social networking websites.

    Hi. I’m a 8th grade and I’ve been in web design for about a year, and over the last year, I’ve learned about HTML, CSS, Javascript, PHP, MySQL, and some JQuery. PHP is my favorite language because it isn’t accessible by the user. Only the input and output is available to the user; the majority of a website should be coded in PHP. I’ve learned about PHP Forms(POST and GET data), cookies, sessions, etc. I learned PHP off of YouTube along with everything else, so i’m concerned I learned everything in an unconventional method, meaning that I don’t match all the standards that you would receive in a classroom. I’ve learned how to use MySQL databases with MySQL queries to hold user credentials, but I have a new project. I want to make my first social networking website. I have a web server, but I have one question: how is all the data(recent activity, posts, etc.) held? Is it held in a database? If so, wouldn’t the queries take a long time because of web traffic? I know Facebook uses multiple DNS servers, so what is the most efficient way to hold all the data of a social networking website?

    I was wondering if there are any good books on owning and managing a social networking website. I have found it difficult to prepare for the challenges of managing a website. We recently hired a consulting/software development company that has taken care of everything from design and development to analyzing, testing, and hosting. However, I would like to know everything that they know!

    Is there anything I can study to learn the ins and outs of owning and operating a social networking website?
