If you are just starting, PHP has insurmountable advantage over other programming languages for the webs, for reasons I already stated above. For a real big social website, the difference may not be that significant, and in fact PHP does lack certain OOP features to be called a complete OO language. In this case, you will have to decide for yourself.
