    what do you mean by approximate budget of any big social networks? Is it a budget for social network development, or social campaign, or what?

    Good morning,

    If you're looking to make a normal "Add a friend" or "follow" type of Facebook/Twitter then I don't think that would be very wise you'd be hitting your head against a wall. It must have some sort of twist to it.

    If your concept is a unique one you should have no problems with investment at all, assuming you are going full white hat.

    Keep in mind social networks usually don't make any impact to the world for the first 1-3 years, good luck.

    If you can write the code yourself look at using a opensource project like elgg and building a propriety module or tier on top of it. See if it works, promote it.

    If you can't code I would forget it. There are a million and one people out there with the 'next big idea' for social networking. Unless you work for a reasonably sized software house with a track record no investor is going to touch it.

    I guess as long as you don't already have great projects you'll have a hard time getting money

    If I were you, I certainly would not invest to build a brand new social network. The social network like facebook and twitter seem to be perfect. As a user I do want to use some other if they are not as good as these two. Do you think you can make one that is better than facebook?
