Why not just look at an existing social networking site and see what functionality they offer?

Your site has friends! Lawsuit! One-click following! Lawsuit!

Start by working out scenarios of how the site would be used from the point of view of users who want to accomplish various things, include the scenarios the administrator of the system will need.

When your project group has enough written scenarios (also called case studies) the basic requirements should become obvious.

The more time you put into that initial stage, the less time you will waste when coding.

You make it sound as bad as it is... Remember Amazon's one-click shopping?

How can we give you the requirements of your project? If you don't know what you're supposed to do, how can anybody else? Doesn't your company have product management? Also, it's generally not a good idea to decide on implementation details (like frameworks to be used) before the requirements have been fixed.

Okay, so what's the issue? Why can't you look at Twitter (not what I'd use as a model of a social networking site, but that's a different issue) and figure out what functionality it has? Or any other social networking site? I don't see why you'd need help in figuring out what functionality to implement.
