How Do You Start A Program Online Like Facebook?

So not that I’m planning on it, but I’m curious. How does someone start an online program such as Facebook or a new search engine?
Like I know its programming, but hows it done?
Even if I have a good programming knowledge, how do you go about doing it.

    Facebook is written in PHP, and the way it saves data is through a database that I don’t know if but I’m guessing MySQL — it can be established with these two. Not to mention they have a gigantic hosting bill 🙂
    The odds are you will not succeed with a Social Networking Site, many, many, many people think of trying to do it but they always fail.
    You can look at and they offer free social communities. Or you could purchase a turnkey SNS script. Programming it would require a few years of server side programming and the fact that you ask how its done shows that you would need a lot more practice and training!

    Well, like you say you need the programming skill (in Facebook’s case the main language is PHP). But just as important is the business savvy of knowing what a good business model is at that moment, and the ability to convince people to back you.

  13. You can begin learning PHP and then taking it from there. It is not that hard if you put your mind on it. Trust me. Just do it.
