      I am soon going to be developing my own social network, but I need some feedback first and a few suggestions.

      Please tell me what features you want in a social network.

      Also, tell me what kind of topic you like social networks on such as General?

      Name suggestions for a social network?

      I think just a general place where friends can friend one another and stay in contact is great :) nothing fancy, non of the gaming apps or anything like that.

      Name changes is going to be the difficult one as you want something that is catchy but not the same or similar to what is already out there.

      Yeah. I agree with what you have said. I will be working on my social network over the weekend hopefully and should have it all up and running by the weekend after that :)

      I am really using social networking site to connect with friends. Also to be able to find old friends and have news about them as they are posting updates, pictures and information about them.

      I just want the site to be as user-friendly as ever.
      Maybe something like Facebook but with added features would make its name through the web.

      I hate having to reject friend request. You know how Myspace sometimes required email to send a friend request? That was a good idea, but instead it should be a security question of the person's choice.
      I hope that recommendation helps.

      That is a pretty good idea dsb3447 :) never really thought of that myself but I have to say it is a good idea and would definitely keep away spammers or random requests especially if it was a question only people you know knew the answer to. I did like the myspace email thing but having something much more personal would work alot better.

      Hmm that's a great idea man! All the best in creating that social network :)
      Well I think that you have to incorporate the option of doing video calls and audio calls to your social network. If you take Facebook for example, what is missing is the ability to communicate using that. If you could have more or less the same functions of Facebook that would work! :)
