I need a web developer to design a social networking website with eye catching graphics and be user friendly. The website I want to pattern it after is Youtube with a Facebook type of instant messenger, chat rooms, and a live webcam option, also integrated into the design. The site must have membership sign up worked into the design. The site will be built to be secure, scalable, standards compliant, professional, and highly polished. I would like the site to be integrated with an admin section that I can manage easily without knowing programming. Where I can update, delete, create, active, and inactive any content. I would also like advertising banners that I can control from admin section. Also, I am seeking a long-term partner to assist with the continued development of the site, beyond this project and the initial launch. You should have experience in making these sorts of websites, so you will have no trouble in deliver what I want from you and probably already know what I want.

Similar to Youtube, Featured Section (Mixed: Videos, Pics, Audio), Music, Dance, Models, Audio. Along with all the functions of Youtube, practically a youtube clone.
