Description:

Home Page:

I am in need of a complete social networking site to be built PHP/MySql. Site must have same abilities as Myspace.com or Friendster.com. Specifically, the site must allow the user to create a user profile which will consist of personal information such as email, name, address, city, state, country and postal code. Users will also be prompted to complete information about the schools they attended and dates of attendance. Lastly, users will also be prompted for previous employers and dates of employment.

This information will be stored in a MySql database table. Additionally, once a new user creates a profile, he will be provided a personal directory where he can upload pictures, blogs, etc. to personalize his website. The Home Page will contain an area in which returning users can login or new users can select new user where they will be directed to a create profile page.

**Search Page-**

The second page will be a Search page. The Search page will allow returning users to search the member database once they login. If the login is unsucessful, they will be prompted to login again or create a new user account. This project requires a search page which allow a user to search by data including: Name, zip code and schools attended and previous employers. If a user chooses to search by employer or school attended, they will also be required to complete a date of attendance field.

**Results Page:**

A **Results page** will also need to be created which will display the results of the users query. The layout of the results page should be formatted to sort according to the search fields selected by the user.

**User Pages:**

User Pages should allow the User the ability to customize there own pages by adding pictures, audio clips, etc.

I am looking for a company that has prior experience creating a social networking site that is scalable and allow for future growth.

Must allow users to send messages to other users.

The product needs to arrive as an .exe which you can install onto your webserver and must ask basic questions such as:

what is your core database name, admin username, password, firstname field, last name field, e-mail address field etc. so the networking site will easily work with an existing website. The url should be able to accept a userID and lastname which would auto-log the person in.

The program needs to be delivered as an installable .exe file to be installed on the webserver.

During the installation, the system will check to see if the tables already exist and if they don't, it will create them, if they do, it should inform the user that x table already exists, would they like to continue without recreating that table etc.

Once project is completed, I will acquire full license of the end product and all associated coding so I may transfer it to another at a later date.
