    Social Networking Application

    Hello. I am going to attempt to build a social networking web application that has similar functionality to Facebook and Last.fm in the way that you can create a profile, find friends, search for music and add it to a library and listen to music over a network. I am hoping to do this using ASP.Net, MySQL and HTML. However, i've never really built anything this complicated and was wondering if anyone had any tips for me?

    Yeah, you may be biting off more than you can chew with something that big. Try building some smaller app first.

    You're idea is great... but rather start first in a small application rather than the huge one. Little by little....

    considering the amount of competition out there, I think you should study this one well and take your time in deciding whether to do it or not, what to offer and how to promote and make money from it.
