That's easy.
1. You design and build the database you need for that application.
2. You design and build the PHP-program you need.
3. You find a host.
4. You deploy your application to the host.

You will need to have command over some basic languages if you are preferring PHP for your social networking site.

CSS - Use it for designing purpose.(Templates)

HTML would be used as basic language.

PHP would be used as Business Logic page.

You need to use a basic designing tool make your task easy

As a database you can use MySql, and if your are thinking about bigger database you can go for Oracle.

And while hosting you have to take care of security.

To handle and maintain a social networking website is too tough job.
