Hey guys

I am needing some help here with a ball park question of cost to create website.
So a cross of a social network like facebook, but also combined with the complexity and services of yahoo.com and all their video and services.

Does any one have an idea of a ball park price to create this?
USA Price
India Price
South America Price?

I am pretty lost with coming up with a price.

Would it be cheaper to hire full time employees? How many would you need? and what type? or if outsouced how many people would be needed?

Thanks so much

Are you going to code this massive project yourself?

Yahoo has $16.9 billion capitalization. That should give you a starting figure to work with :o

Write it up then go find a VC to get started. Depending on what you can scare up there you'll be able to answer all the other questions.

It's actually going to be a lot less than you expect.

1. You must use a CMS for this (DotNetNuke is perfect)

2. Social networking has spread like wild fire and therefore CMS module developers have answered the demand for "instant" social networking packages which are available for sub $500 total. Labour to configure the CMS and modules is another story.

You can't "code" your own social network. Unless you have a niche that twitter, myspace, yahoo and facebook haven't answered your dollars will be wasted. Not to discount the abilities of the PHP and .NET coders of the world, it just makes more business sense to start closer to the finish line versus starting with use case senarios... if you know what I mean.
