FYI - I am copying from another ad on this site because the information is near exact to what we are trying to do. Here goes)
I need an eye catching social networking website similar to my space or facebook with features such as uploading/downloading of videos, audios, photos by users, the ability to create groups, chatrooms, forums, messaging, blogs, voting VOTING VOTING). We also want to be able to sell items on the site, and of course we need security for our users.
We need a catchy home page that will have new content daily. Users will be able to search our different categories for information on each category. There will be lots of voting on this site similar to http://www.greatamericanphotocontest.com/BabyContest/Home.aspx which we hope will bring people back to the site again and again.
This site will allow users to view blogs/videos/photos/groups, along with the usual social networking capabilities .
*Videos/Photos – Users need to be able to upload videos/photos to their profiles (Youtube etc…). Users can add videos/photos to their profile, embed, share with friends and add comments.
*People – Users should be able to easily search various music on our site and download, purchase if desired.
*Groups – Users need to add/join/create groups in our specific categories.
*Blogs – Users will be able to create blogs to document and share their interests
* E- Commerce - The site must also have sections to sell thousands of items.
We need to be able to control and manage the entire website. A strong Content Management System (CMS) should allow us to make quick and easy changes to all pages. An important feature of the admin will be our ability to easily add new information.
*Advertising – The site will feature advertisement slots (Google Ads, banners, etc…).We need to be able to easily manage site advertising in the admin
