3.1.3 Database work All the database queries that will be required for the project have been completed. The structure of the database is subject to change according to the requirements of the project and the need to incorporate new features or update existing ones. Some changes have been made to the existing database queries: 1. Change made to the register table Register_table query CREATE TABLE register_table( user_id VARCHAR( 20 ) NOT NULL , password VARCHAR( 30 ) NOT NULL , first_name VARCHAR( 50 ) NOT NULL , last_name VARCHAR( 50 ) NOT NULL , gender VARCHAR( 10 ) NOT NULL , date_of_birth VARCHAR(20) NOT NULL , street VARCHAR(20) NOT NULL , city VARCHAR(20) NOT NULL , state VARCHAR(20) NOT NULL , zip integer(20) NOT NULL , country VARCHAR(20) NOT NULL , email VARCHAR(20) NOT NULL , PRIMARY KEY ( user_id ) ) ENGINE = MYISAM Friend_list table CREATE TABLE friend_list (

Software Requirements Specification for Social Networking Website

user_id VARCHAR( 20 ) NOT NULL , friend_user_id VARCHAR( 20 ) NOT NULL , CONSTRAINT user_id_fk FOREIGN KEY(user_id) REFERENCES register_table(user_id) ON DELETE CASCADE, CONSTRAINT friend_user_id_fk FOREIGN KEY(friend_user_id) REFERENCES register_table(user_id) ON DELETE CASCADE ) ENGINE = MYISAM ;

The register table query that was mentioned earlier was modified to add the other details like gender,street etc. These values will be used to display the data on the user profile page. 2 .Change made to the videos table query CREATE TABLE video ( user_id VARCHAR( 20 ) NOT NULL , video_id VARCHAR( 20 ) NOT NULL , UNIQUE(video_id), CONSTRAINT user_id_fk FOREIGN KEY(user_id) REFERENCES register_table(user_id) ON DELETE CASCADE ) ENGINE = MYISAM ;

The Video table will now have a video_id unique attribute to disallow redundant data into the database. All other details have been implemented dynamically using the youtube API. 3. Changes made to the message table query CREATE TABLE message ( Seq INT NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT, user_id VARCHAR( 20 ) NOT NULL , receiver_user_id VARCHAR( 20 ) NOT NULL , message VARCHAR( 350 ) NOT NULL, PRIMARY KEY(seq), CONSTRAINT user_id_fk FOREIGN KEY(user_id) REFERENCES register_table(user_id) ON DELETE CASCADE, CONSTRAINT receiver_user_id_fk FOREIGN KEY(receiver_user_id) REFERENCES register_table(user_id) ON DELETE CASCADE ) ENGINE = MYISAM

The message table now limits the maximum number of characters for a single message to be 350 characters. This change was made to save space utilized and the memory footprint of our project. Another change made was adding the sequence attribute which is the primary key of the message table. This was added because data base inconsistency was occurring during the actual implementation phase. 4. Changes made to the blog table query: CREATE TABLE blog ( user_id VARCHAR( 20 ) NOT NULL , title VARCHAR( 100 ) NOT NULL, contents LONGBLOB NOT NULL, date_of_creation DATE NOT NULL, CONSTRAINT user_id_blog_fk FOREIGN KEY(user_id) REFERENCES register_table(user_id) ON DELETE CASCADE ) ENGINE = MYISAM ;

The actual contents of the blog are now stored with the data type CLOB instead of LONGBLOB because CLOB satisfies all our requirements and saves some memory too.

3.2 Programmer’s Point of View The earlier section covers the schema of the project with the design of the tables being created. For all pages we are going to use PHP and HTML as frontend and MySQL as backend. Login Page: We are going to verify the login credentials from register table. If user enters valid information he/she will get logged in and home page will get displayed. If person is new user he will select Register page option. Register Page: Register page will take basic user details and after checking all the values (eg. Empty values, Invalid Password etc.) It will insert all the values in the register table. After successful inserts, user will get directed to login page. Home Page: On the home page, we will have friends list displayed in html table on the right side of page and all these values will be retrieved from friends table. This page will also have links to pages like videos, blogs etc. The middle part of home page will have entries displayed from register table. Edit profile page:

Software Requirements Specification for Social Networking Website

Once the user has logged on, he can change the profile details by using the edit profile page. When the user reaches this page, data will be obtained from the register table (select query on the register table) and displayed in the respective text boxes. The user could change these details if he wishes to do so. After he finishes editing the details he can click the update button. When this button is clicked the new details will be updated in the register table. These new details will be selected from the register table during future references. Video Page: For video page we are going to use YouTube API. We will have search video option. After searching the videos, option will be provided to user for adding the video to his/her profile. For this functionality will add the ‘Embed’ details for that video will get added to video tables. All the profile videos will get displayed on the right hand side of the page. Image Page: On the image page we will have browse button. User will select the image file from his local machine and click on add Image. After adding the image, the image will be stored in the images folder on the server. And the URL of that image will be stored in the images tables. Below the browse button, all the images added for the current user will get displayed from images table.

Sell page: This page will allow the user to add the image of the product he wishes to sell. The uploaded image would be stored on the server and the image link would be saved in the sell table. Along with the product image the description of the product and the start price is entered in the sell table. The sell page would also have the option of adding more products if the user wishes to sell. In this scenario the entries would be added in the sell table. If the user wishes to see all the items which are up for sale, the user can click on the link “List Of All Items” .All the information about the products would be retrieved from the sell table. Buy Page: This page shows the Interface through which the user can Bid for the products available for the user. This page requires some validations like for example, the product seller must provide with an initial price. The bid value must be greater than the starting price. When the user selects the product to be bided from the drop down menu a query is fired to the buy table in the database which then retrieves the image and the corresponding details of the product and displays it on the right side. The user enters the bid value and selects buy to place the bid for the product. Now if the bid value is maximum and suitable then it is notified to the seller user to accept the bid or reject it. If the seller accepts it then the product is registered in the user’s name that bids for it and hence owns the product.

Conclusion We define social network sites as web-based services that allow individuals to (1) construct a public or semi-public profile within a bounded system, (2) articulate a list of other users with whom they share a connection, and (3) view and traverse their list of connections and those made by others within the system. The nature and nomenclature of these connections may vary from site to site. While we use the term "social network site" to describe this phenomenon, the term "social networking sites" also appears in public discourse, and the two terms are often used interchangeably. We chose not to employ the term "networking" for two reasons: emphasis and scope. "Networking" emphasizes relationship initiation, often between strangers. While networking is possible on these sites, it is not the primary practice on many of them, nor is it what differentiates them from other forms of computer-mediated communication (CMC). What makes social network sites unique is not that they allow individuals to meet strangers, but rather that they enable users to articulate and make visible their social networks. This can result in connections between individuals that would not otherwise be made, but that is often not the goal, and these meetings are frequently between "latent ties" (Haythornthwaite, 2005) who share some offline connection. On many of the large SNSs, participants are not necessarily "networking" or looking to meet new people; instead, they are primarily communicating with people who are already a part of their extended social network. To emphasize this articulated social network as a critical organizing feature of these sites, we label them "social network sites." Hope Frenzoholic will be able to provide with all these facilities and features to all of its users .
