    This is really nice thread to discuss and i think its not possible to develop a site like Facebook using any one single tech. So i think all the tech has been used for Facebook. Java, Html, Dot net and flash these are the main and lead tech for any website.

    I think if any major tech is there then it would be Java and Html. Any way as we are getting multiple facility there i think all designing language and tools has played a major role.

    Parts of the backend might be done in C/C++ but the front end has much more PHP or Java or Python or Ruby or whatever. C/C++ for speed. PHP, etc, for quicker development.

    Hi Zini,

    Nice thread from you. Really facebook is not at all a single technology used under. Because combined technologies makes social network to attract others. So many number of technologies were behind in it.
