Designing Social Networking Website

I am a final year student and i wish to design a social networking site. I would like to know which language can i use for the same. Also let me know a brief idea about the front end and back end to be used in the social networking site.

Typically, the choice of language is decided by the features you're trying to implement. I'd recommend Ruby programming language with Rails framework.

Not exactly sure what you're looking for about 'front end' and 'back end'. Are you looking for ideas about features? Or are you looking for the choice of Javascript libraries (front end) and database systems (back end) ?

I want the basic features such as chat, emailing, blogging,etc.
And by front end i mean the user interface to be used such as java script libraries and back end in which we actually design the site.
Back End can be anything. Go for the technology you are familiar with. Being a BTech student, I think you will be aware of Oracle so just connect your front end with Oracle. Making a social networking website is fun. Make the front end using html/css/javascript and connect it with the back end. You can also go for .NET as it provides an easier way of designing but if you want to go to the core of coding, then use java..

You dont design the site in back end. Back end is just used for record keeping where you can match the records and provide some functionality. An easy example of this would be a login page, where you compare the record for user name and password in the back end and if they match, you grant access to the user

Can you provide me the basic coding?

Come on, make a start! Fire up your Eclipse and give it a sincere try. All super cool engineers here on CE are here to help you at every stage; but you must 'try' first, on your own.

Facebook is not so interactive at time of inception and its was really bad at that time. I also seen it in 2006 , around 2 years after its launched. Things are getting improved by time.
If you really want to build those things and wanted to have some basic knowledge . You should try to create login pages and show home page for few users which is accessible over your LAN network.
Which language you want to apply for it?
