Niche Social Network

I am looking to develop / design a social networking website for Ethiopians using Joomla. The project will require both website design and programming. The planned website will be well-organized, clean design and high in quality. The design should have a web 2.0 feel and look. The website will be home to thousands users so stability is a must.

Facebook is a good example of a clean social networking website. Yelp is a great example of social networking meets local businesses: I want both users and businesses to be able to have and run their respective profiles. The planned website will employ the applications/functionalities typically found at online social networking websites (e.g., creating profiles, inviting friends to join network, searching and viewing member profiles, posting blogs, etc.). Facebook & Yelp again serve as a good reference for the social network platform functionalities to be incorporated into the website.

Registered users will create a profile (e-mail verification), search for friends, interact with users who share similar interests, who are from the same city/state in Ethiopia, and what city/state they live in now.

Users can post articles, videos, pictures about anything that interests them and other users can comment and interact with them.

Users will be able to submit news stories like Digg and users will get points of some sort.

Forums - local discussion area.

Business Directory - allow businesses to submit/modify their business listing, also allowing for a premium listing at the top of that category search.

Advertisement management - allowing businesses to submit and pay for adverts.

Authentication from other networks (Facebook, Twitter, Google, etc.)

Events, Clubs/Societies, allowing them to have a page listed in the various categories of the site such as Sports clubs which details their current information and news

Current News - editable content for news also allowing news feeds from other sources

Skills: Graphic Design, Joomla, MySQL, PHP, Website Design
