[QUESTION] What do I need to create a social network?

Posted 07 April 2012 - 02:29 AM

Hello, I want to create a social network and I don't know where to start. I think facebook is developed in php and javascript, right? Is there any website where to find sample code or resources?

Thanks to all.

Sure, if you know what you're looking for...
Creating a social network without any knowledge of php or javascrpt or any databases , it's going to be a bit difficult for you...
Why don't you start by creating small things with php and MySQL, and then when you find what you need to start a social network, and then you may start one!...
If my answer doesn't suites you...bahh....

I'll give you a hint:

Social Network == A lot of work and knowledge

I don't know where to start

You would start with the design. If you want to have any hope of building a decent system, especially when aiming for a more complex systems like social networking sites, then your design must be rock solid. No amount of code examples or language resources will help you if you yourself don't know exactly how your system is meant to work.

Your best hopes of finding any decent code examples to follow would be to find a open-source PHP social networking system. I don't know any, but Google will no doubt dig them up for you if they exist.

It's true that Facebook's back-end is written in PHP, and it's front-end uses Javascript to a degree. You shouldn't let that have an effect on the decision of which language you are going to use. PHP worked for the Facebook team, but that doesn't meant it will work for you. Don't decide to use PHP just because Facebook did.

Also keep in mind that Facebook's PHP code is compiled, using a PHP C compiler they built themselves, so they are avoiding the biggest downside to PHP: the inherit performance hit interpreted languages have to take.

Thanks, I'm not a beginner with PHP or SQL. I just done a project in PHP and MySQL for a Moodle Plataform. I'd like to read articles which treat what things should be done and what things not to do with PHP.
