    Someone wants me to code some features for a Facebook type site.

    They say they have the design sliced and coded in HTML so the only thing for me would be the database and PHP code.

    Here is what he said he needed?

    1- profile -edit
    2- wall- viewing and deleteing unwanted messages
    3- friends- same as above
    4- Alert feature
    5- Email function with number of new emails showing(which might be done)
    6- For each user(allow or deny acces to there profile) hide or show (option of what you want others to see when viewing your profile)
    7- Albums adding,deleteing
    8- advanced search

    I was thinking around $1500?

    $3,000, a job like that can cost from $29.99 to $90,000 depending on where you go. So just play up that you actually speak English(beating out all the indians offering to do it for $100) and the person will pay

    too many variables
    a) location: indian, russian, American
    b) experience: can hire a pro or an amateur or an amateur pretending to be a pro or a company or an amateur pretending to be a company
    c) can hire someone who is doing this fulltime or part time
    d) can hire someone who'll be able to do it in 1 day, 1 week, 1 month, 1 year. Of course he'll have people who'll offer to do it in 1 day, but will extend the timeline and 2 years later his project will be 10% complete

    there are so many variables that it could be a 1 month, 1K project or a 9 month, 90K project or a 5 month $500 project.

    this is pretty advanced.

    Just the database for a site like this could easily command way over what anyone has quoted.

    doing that is simple.

    doing it correctly, is a MUCH longer, difficult process

    take a look at meeta.com, it's pretty much the same thing. expect to pay...a lot.

    but if you want the simple, dialed down version, we can talk :o
