    Now I'm looking to have a website built for me by hiring freelancers. Now the website Im planning to have built is pretty big like myspace. First off, I have very little background experience designing websites and I'd like for this to go as smoothly as possible. All the features I need are that of myspace, such as profiles, search engines, etc..but without the myspace/music part. How much will I be looking to spend on a project such as this? How will I keep my work confidential between myself and the freelancers? How will I cover my end so that the freelancer(s) wont take/steal my ideas? Any contracts I should be aware of? Anything I need to know to cover my end? How long should this project take? Anything helpful from you guys would be great! Thanks!

    You're looking at 100k+ if you want it done properly

    possibly that :dunno:

    theres plenty of myspace and match.com clones...you could possibly buy a clone and get it modified.

    nope. i dont bother with social sites...cant compete with myspace/facebook without $$$ imo.

    social engine supposedly lets you test out the script though

    Don't try it.

    The only way to make a small fortune building a social network is to start with a large one.
