    Don't know but I'm sure it is never gonna work, facebook is too much popular now. No one really gives a shii to other social networking sites except Facebook, Myspace and Twitter.

    Facebook became more populer because it is quite different from myspace. Also, it provided a much friendly interface. But if u plan to open a social network that is similar to FB, then obviously its not gonna be popular. So, u hav to get a better idea, something different.

    Anyways, i guess if u want to make a social networking site, then first u need to b a pro programmer or hire some. It also requires time & a fortune of money to implement such ideas on the net, spreading it, maintaining the site etc. So, in will easily cross millions(mayb billions) to achieve sumthing that facebook has achieved.

    Also, if u see the movie "The social network" (if already not seen) then u might get a hint

    Plus, I don't think its a fail idea to make a new social networking site, given that you can do it right.

    I mean, Facebook was dominating, but then came Twitter which became almost equally(?) popular. Now there's also Tumblr which being used a lot. So I guess there is still a scope to do something new in this field, given that you have a good dev team, and some guys who are great at marketing.
