    If you want to create a website you need to pay for a domain and hosting and you can use a WordPress for "free website" with few clicks.

    Once you have hosting and a domain then you just need to choose a website backend. The far and away most popular is Wordpress. It is free to download, most hosting providers offer a simple one step installer and there are tons of both free and premium themes (how the site looks) and plugins (added functionality). If you search (I am too new to put links in replies still) for buddypress you will find a free wordpress extension that can turn your site into a social site.

    There are alternatives like Joomla, Drupal, Concrete5, Umbraco (.NET) and many, many more, but you will find Wordpress to be both the easiest system to learn and the most supported (number of free or very inexpensive plugins/themes). Good Luck!

    Can you explain what you do not like or why you do not like those open source Free website builders? The reason I ask is that to find both a "good" website building system that includes social site functionality and to get it for free is...well almost impossible?

    There is an excellent one that is technically free, but to get any real documentation I think you need to be a premium member (not 100% sure on that) and it is called Anahita. It is open source and based upon the Joomla framework NOT the CMS. I know a couple of people that have built pretty cool social sites using it. Actively developed by a guy out of Canada.

    With Drupal you can get several free modules and create a social site, but you need to be fairly "techie" to pull that one off. You do not have to know how to code PHP to do it, but you need to understand how the systems work together enough that you need to REALLY know Drupal and that means you are some form of "techie". If you decide you can live with Joomla CMS, there is JomSocial. Not too expensive and pretty robust. You will be hard pressed to find anything easier/cheaper than Wordpress/Buddypress combo.

    I built a social site for a client and used Python/Django and charged over $35k and that was CHEAP!
