I am looking for a facebook/myspace style social networking site. The site will combine the best features of both as well as be innovative and have new features that none of them have. It needs to be designed to make the best use of resources, hard drive space/bandwidth while still remaining reliable.
The site will have all the latest features, chat, messenger, mail, address book, blog, music, videos, etc.
You must be able to offer advice also on the type of server I will need and the software I need on the server to run the site as well as implement backup plans. I am not hosting on someone elses site if possible and would like to host myself, so you must know about hardware and networking and be able to advise me as well as building the site. You will also install the software on the server and test it. It must be free of bugs and unhackable.
I don't want some script that you have used before or that a million others are using. I need this to also be done over a space of at least 1 months to ensure proper work and testing. Please also be prepared to advise about how to get users on the site.
If you cannot do this properly or have no skills in doing this type of thing please dont respond, if you disappear for days at a time or take long to do the work please dont respond. I will not pay before work is done and would be happy to escrow the money.
Please keep all bids reasonable or I will not respond to you. If you have questions please ask.
