We just finished version 1 of a 100% Flash-based social-networking site. The
site was built for a brand (dr. pepper), with teenagers in mind, so things
like chat have been left out on purpose (legal) for now.
I am hoping we will go through another round or two of development, as this
version was rushed and we had some great ideas to allow users to customize
the content more. I still have lots of refactoring that needs to happen
Whether it will be successful is a good question. They are going to seed
content soon through a university contest, then they will launch it to the
world via ad campaigns and printing on the bottles.

than a site operating on CSS or HTML, His question in
response to my Flash bias left me stumped for an
He said, "Most successful sites are done with a mix of
Flash and HTML such as YouTube, MySpace, etc. What
successful networking sites have been produced all in
Flash, if any?"
I couldn't answer my friend's question, but from a
historical standpoint, this is a valid question and
would be interesting to discuss. Any answers out
