    No shit huh.

    To answer the poster I'd think you'd want some kind of PHP/MySQL setup.

    Like Aimless suggested, you'd need a firm handle on a programming language/platform such as .NET, Java, or PHP. Probably most important is a solid database design. Writing the software for something like that isn't very difficult for an experienced programmer; creating a scaleable and efficient database design would be a tougher challenge in my opinion.

    A PHP/MySQL system would offer alot of flexiblity. I would go with that if I had such a venture.

    If you decide to undertake such a task, I wish you luck. The person who created thefacebook must be doing pretty well. Such a great way to earn advertising dollars and the software itself is really quite simple. The end product was obviously successful with college students. A couple of friends and I are trying to come up with another simple idea where we can gain by way of advertising dollars.
