I would suggest to study existing sites like MySpace, FaceBook, LinkedIn and XING. See what they have, and come up with a list of features you need/want. I don't think there are any particularly complex algorithms involved.

One way to start is with a large whiteboard or big sheet of paper!

I'm serious - drawing out diagrams of how you want your users to be connected to each other and various functions could clarify your thinking.

I would never start a big project like this by staring at a code editor - draw lots of diagrams first. Thats why this post got transferred here - UML, patterns etc are the tools people have invented to tackle projects like this.
