I am looking for a ‘clone like' website (must be legal using your own code) which functions the same as [url removed, login to view]
I would like this website to be as close to the workflow of LinkedIn as possible without copying their source code exactly (Basically a clone copy of their site that is completely fresh code). I do realize that [url removed, login to view] has added many customized apps over the years and we are not asking for replication of all of those.
We are looking for core and major functionality of the site including the networking components (1st, 2nd, 3rd degree and out of network). This will include:
CORE FUNCTIONALITY (must include):
- PROFILE section- all functionality
- CONTACTS section- all functionality
- GROUPS section- all functionality
- COMPANIES section- all functionality
- SANDBOX (will provide further details)
we need a user friendly sandbox area where different topics and industry specific questions can be posted, responded to and discussed.
- CHAT Application integrated (needs to be an new style interface)
The Job posting and Jobs area needs to be nearly identical and will all have similar functionality.
We need the full package (Design, Programming, Database development and Testing)
