I am looking for someone that can do TWO things:
1. Create a facebook clone
2. Create a NEW Application that I describe which will be compatible with this new facebook clone. This application should be able to allow users to see when their friends are within one mile radius from them wherever they go. (I will describe this application in detail when we get in contact)
I am willing to pay more for and prefer to hire someone who resides in northern California and can meet face to face.
I want the Facebook Clone with all of the same features exactly like (the New) Facebook....and then make some modification to the script to set it apart from other social networking sites.
I know that there are many Facebook clone scripts out there. I need more than just that. You can use them for parts, but I need more..see below.
The script should initially look EXACTLY like Facebook (with some additions listed below). (((We will modify it and make it unique later...)))
I MEAN AN EXACT CLONE OF NEW FACEBOOK, with all the settings and options facebook has (example: ability to be used via mobile phones). The pages should be an exact clone of Facebook. Every function. Every feature. It will look and act EXACTLY like Facebook. Not similar. Not bits and pieces. I want it EXACT. A clone. Facebook members should not be able to tell the difference (except for the extra features we add). This way, you and I will avoid confusion of what I want.
Like FB, It must be able to recommend potential friends based on School, School +year range (just like Facebook), and also by Employer.
Like Facebook, When filling in school info on Profile Edit, it must have 'auto-fill' that recommends possible schools after filling in the first few letters, and limits the schools with more letters ( SEE FACEBOOK for example). It will also learn new schools to put in autofill if the school was not there previously. It will do the same with 'Employer'.
In general, I want it exactly like Facebook.
At the end of project, I will have you make some easy custom text and style modifications to that the website so that it is unique, special, and doesn't violate copyrights.
After you show me a working version of the website on YOUR host, I will instruct you to make some style, graphic and text changes, so that we have a website that is unique. You will create elegant, simple, logo, and change of the cloned graphics to original graphics.
One other thing that I would like you to add:
Under Invite Friends: Be able to invite friends from your Facebook, MySpace, LinkedIn, Friendster, Bebo, and Orkut accounts. Just enter your username and password, and it automatically invites all of your friends from that account.
I will pay by escrow after completion, upload and debug. Your bid will be paid after project is complete.
Escrow will be released to you when full website is complete, debugged, and uploaded to my server to my satisfaction.
I must emphasize, all software must be self contained. No outside services should be needed. You will put all software on my server(s). You will need to install/configure anything/everything that is necessary to make script work.
Code must be modular and elegantly organized, and easy for a novice like myself to sort through.
All rights to software belong exclusively to me. You will not be able to share any part of any of this project with anyone else. I want 100% source code. No encrypted files.
