We would like to get a portal with functionality of www.linkedin.com.
The goal is to build database of connections among people. Each user can connect friends to network node. There should be "invite friend" option that sends email to users' friends. In sent message there will be direct link to the portal which will add new user to database, ask for new user info and connect it to the friend that has sent the message.
The portal will have following main areas:
1. Account (email, password...) / Profile information (location, age...)
2. Network - displays directly and indirectly connected friends (criteria: degrees of separation)
3. Search - possibility of search for another user using different criteria, like name, location, age, company...
4. Invite friends
The design is not important (as this will be used for volounteer organisation), but functionallity should be as close as possible to LinkedIn.com.
