Most of Webmaster’s who look for developing a site like Facebook Myspace or Orkut, etc.“>etc, then choose the script that meets for you. I am listing my Top 10 social networking scripts that had built recently by others.
Elgg is my favorite free social networking script and it has numerous modules that built’s as Facebook. The team is still developing and more flexible. I am using on my site and here is a preview for you all. Elgg had plugin’s as back cover image upload just as twitter and Facebook.
This is my second favorite script and it is a paid script, but more powerful for building social networking site. One time license is $299 and this is the best offer to buy this script or else choose the $29 per month and it is a waste of money. I would recommend to you buy one time license script.
Phpfox is running from several years and most of the sites are still using because of their cool features. Here are some of them as follows.

Drupal is one of top CMS for various purposes that also builds a social network site with some of their modules. I’ve used it for the first time and seen it has good rankings in Google and brought some registrations for free. Drupal needs some more modules to build a site like Facebook. However I moved to the Elgg CMS platform.
If you still want to build a social network website using Drupal, then hire someone to build it. This way you won’t waste your time and also it will make a great site.
