Project Description

What functionality is required:
The project I've been asked to work on tries to set up a social network with a focus on user-added blog posts which do appear in both the user's personal blog as well as relevant contexts, defined by the blog post's metadata. All this is surrounding a specific topic; if you are chosen, I will get back to you with more details about the actual idea. The main areas of functionality will be defined below:
1) Accounts:
As it is a social networks, users need to be able to set up accounts, change details and settings, have their own profile page (including the content they added) and so on.
2) Adding content:
Users need to be able to write long, rich text posts and add media, such as photography and videos (to be considered to just embed). Also, users should be able to add metadata, such as location, activity and so on.
3) Interaction with posts:
Users should be able to combine different posts, both their own and from other users, to a collection of posts.
User should be able to favourite posts by other users.
4) Map functionality:
There should be a functionality that all posts are placed on a map, depending on their metadata.
5) Social functionality:
Typical social network functionality, such as messaging, following and a feed should be present.

What would you use?

It has also been considered to use platforms like BuddyPress and Elgg; if you'd like to use any pre-built solutions, please state which these are.

- PSDs for all pages

If any other documentation is needed, this can be provided as well.

Project handling:
An NDA and statement of IP recognition are required to sign by you.
As there are quite a few hurdles to overcome, please allow me a few days to answer to your proposals - sorry for that!

Hope anyone is interested in it - any questions, please let me know :)
Best regards,
Andreas

P.S. Feel free to put proposals in which are higher than $3000, I don't quite like the arbitrary cut-offs here on Freelancer.
