    Exclamation 'Social Networking'???!!!!

    Hey all,

    Now ive just starting learning PHP and kinda got ahead of myself by saying i'd create a basic 'Social Networking' site for a Uni Project.

    Only thing is... I have no idea as to how i go about making it?!
    I understand this is potentially a complex issue.

    Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Danny.

    Complex doesn't begin to describe it. lol

    Social Networking implies a lot of things. Can you be more specific as to the functionality you plan? Do you want to do everything from scratch or integrated 3rd party applications?

    Cool

    Well as its a Uni project im just talking basics. ill focus on the aesthetic side of things. Basically all i wanted was a basic profile for each user showing a profile pick, a link to be able to email them and for them to be able to place content upon their page.

    Don't worry though, im just a very ambitious person! thank you for your reply.

    You might want to take a look at this site: http://www.kickapps.com/

    It offers many cool apps that are used for social networking.

    Good luck!

    I love Dropbox. Get it through my girlfriend's referral link (I reached my limit) and both you and her get 500 MB extra! Thanks and you're welcome!

    Talking

    Wow that's pretty cool, and the fact that i am able to customise the site using my own coding is a great point.

    Thank you for your post. It has really helped.

    You're welcome, glad to help! If you are interested, this tutorial talks about using kickapps a bit:

    It's about the png fix but it begins with a short introduction to kickapps that might be helpful.

    Good luck with your social networking site!
