Key word and location searches
Invite friends from every big site i.e. (MySpace, yahoo, msn, hi5, facebook, friendster, orkut, google, etc)
Profiles Customizable by user (easy as drag and drop up to html code writing) –but not too customizable that they are able to do more than what is allowed—probably needs to be discussed more with chosen freelancer.
Users will be able to select pre-built full profile layouts, or to select from a library the image for the first block, header and footer for the smaller blocks.
Favorite friends on top of list

Majority of site will use existing plug-ins from other programs and software where available and easy to modify and write codes for.
Pages should be updated live automatically. There should be no need for reloading pages. I.e. new messages, private messaging, new invites, etc...
If something is not specified in the project description, or/and was omitted, but it’s highly required because of the nature of social networks, we expect you to let us know what needs to be included/omitted.
This is a general description, and final description and instructions will be discussed at the beginning of the project, or as per your request. We also expect you to assist
to install the script on our primary server and make sure it will be 100% functional
*VERY IMPORTANT* any other feature, function or idea that will improve the usability within the website and member retention is open for consideration
We expect the project to be built with templates, to be able to easily modify and apply new designs and skins in all categories, functions and profiles. We require the project to be designer-friendly for future graphics re-designs!
Code will be written in English only. Clean, efficient and commented for easy modification
Security: Security is a must, no open doors, disable any code injecting or possibility to be vulnerable. Project will be checked by security expert.
We expect a 100% fully functional project, bug free, error free
There will need to an API or developer kit available from the code we build to let developers/user add their own widgets and content with our look and feel.
The whole website needs to be stable, scalable and efficient. It is a must to be able to run on clustered servers with load balancers! No exceptions! This website needs to function for 100, 10000, 1000000, 5 million users if needed! Project will come through the thorough stress-testing on a server
Site will have as many pages as possible for room for advertisements
Source code will belong to us. You can't resell the source files.
The coder MUST sign a non-disclosure agreement at the beginning of the project.
All code must be unique (not borrowed, stolen, or reused) and more likely to be awarded to a team of programmers rather than just one programmer. All programming will be owned by our company at the completion of the project and may not be used or redistributed later on a project.
Update the project status
The coder(s) need to update the project status and need to upload the project on the server to share the status daily.
deadline will be set when the project will be start.(It will be depending on the coder, but I expect quick delivery)
when the deadline is set, the coder MUST deliver the work by that deadline. (Of course exceptions will be made for legitimate reasons)
What’s important for this project is lightweight on the servers.
Project will be turn-key based on graphic templates that can be easily adjusted/changed/applied!!
We like to work closely with our programmers and expect to have a series of checkpoints and postings on the web to discuss visual layout and functionality.
A final fully operational or demo will be required on our servers at our live domain before we can issue final payment
