Can anyone please offer advise or suggestions about selecting a social network development platform?

I have looked into:-
Ning and KickApps with their customisable template options and pay per month payment models
Open Source Drupal and Joomla Community plugins
Liveworld and Awareness Networks platform technology

They vary and the benefits of each are obvious but I find it difficult to compare.

Can anyone offer advice and which of these or others I should be considering?.

Welcome to WebmasterWorld lee0007.

You've listed some of the most popular platforms. It really depends on what you want to do with your community, your level of expertise, and your budget (and possibly other factors).
