All you really need is a text editor. A syntax-highlighting editor like Notepad++ would be better. An IDE like NetBeans or Eclipse better still.

You're not going to make anything worthwhile in 'a few days'. If you're already familiar with a framework, use that. Otherwise, it's going to take you a few days just to become familiar with whatever framework you choose.

I've already answered some of your question in your other thread about the exact same thing.

A social networking site is a huge undertaking. What do you expect us to do? Walk you through it step by step? If you have specific questions, we can try to answer those.

We can only offer suggestions; which framework you choose is up to you. Like Celauran said; it's a huge undertaking. Start by getting ideas about what you want your social networking site to do; Once that's done start working on it (coding); Otherwise you could post in the Job section and pay someone to do this (or to help you with it).

You can get your social networking site up & ready with no or minimal coding using wordpress and BuddyPress Plugin.

Buddy press is not just a simple plugin - it is a suite of WordPress plugins and themes - you can create a facebook or twitter lookalike in matter of days, if not hours.

Take a look at http://www.buddyboss.com/buddypress-site-directory/
for examples of what is being done with buddypress worldwide

Having said that -

Building a social networking site is no big deal these days - promoting them and getting members is quite another story
