Recently created a social network on www.ning.com.The site is quite cool , as it allows you to create your own social networks.
It has features for blogs,forum,ADS,rss and even Open Social Gadgets. You can view my bad attempt at creating a social network here …http://startupsindia.ning.com/
If you plan a more commercial venture the rates are even more decent,from the Ning Site

- You can use any ad serving service you’d like. You can also use this premium feature to protect your social network from showing any ads at all.
