Some friends and me are thinking of creating a website for us so that we can keep in touch. I have created a website before, but it was when I was a kid. We are wanted a place where we can keep it touch, but where we can control access to who we let in. I know it sounds somewhat like Facebook and we are aware of fb, but we don't really like fb so this website idea came to be. We are thinking of building an apache server to host the site. I know this won't be a simple 1 2, but I would like to get some feedback on this. This is what we have thought the site would have and ocourse we will slowly be adding all of this: a password protected site then they will have to log in to do anything, a wall for announcements, a calendar, a message board, a chatroom, and a place to share pictures.
Thanks in advance for feedback.
