    Hey guys, Long time since I've been here.

    I've gotten tired of facebook and all of it's spam, ads and junk.
    So as a fun project I've coded my own social network and NO I didn't use any plugins or startup packs.

    It's coded from scratch, absolutely everything.
    This is just a demo host, the true domain will be published once I'm happy with everything.

    Go check it out and give some feedback, it'll be much appreciated

    Thanks,
    Christopher.

    It's an interesting start, but I'm not really sure where it's going.

    Signed up using my Hotmail and the email went into spam.
    For some reason, my registration form is all filled out when I'm logged in and go back to the home page.

    And my big question is...why? Why do we need this? Why is there yet another social networking site for me to sign up for, when on every other social networking site I'm on most people don't even bother to use it?

    The thing with Facebook and sites like it (LinkedIn, etc.) is they're reaching the nadir, as forums did many many years ago. They're not dying off yet, but it won't be all that long before they die the Internet death. It happened to MySpace. It happened to AOL. It happened to Classmates. It's going to happen to these types of sites too.

    What I'm saying is you need that one thing to set you apart. That thing that people will see as different. That thing that people will decide "hey, I want to use it" when they see it. And I don't see what that is.

    Oh yeah...and you'll want to make sure that it's sustainable. It's one thing to do this for fun. Get the site around 10,000-15,000 users and then when you're dealing with increased server loads, more resources required to maintain it, and more time overall...then what? You're not running ads, and there aren't any other obvious revenue streams. So you're going to have to think about that.

    I'm not trying to dissuade you...I'm just trying to let you know where I see pitfalls in your idea.
