Hi,

social networking site, I am totally new on ruby on rails, I don't
know how to start working on it. Any suggestion?

I'd strongly recommend you to take a look at the ruby language first.
At least the main features.
There's a nice guide[1] for this. There's also a book with the same name.

Ok, before anything else, you MUST read the Rails guides.
Getting started guide will give you pretty much everything you need to
get yourself in the road.
After that, I suggest you to get the "Agile Web Development with Rails"[2] book.

Hope it helps.

Twitter doesn't use Flash. Come back when you actually have something
accurate to say.

Best,

There are 2 Ruby versions to look at if you are new, 1.8 and 1.9.
Ruby 1.9 really is a step forward from 1.8, but there are 2 problems:
1) Ruby 1.9.1 segfaults with Rails, and 2) 1.9.2 isn't out yet.

So your choices are to stick with 1.8.7 (which has seen some backports
from 1.9) or man up and use Ruby 1.9.2-RC2. That seems stable enough.
Anyway, don't use 1.9.1 for Rails.

Ok, before anything else, you MUST read the Rails guides.

Same story, Rails 2.3.x is the stable one, but Rails 3 is just around
the corner. Some apps are already using Rails 3 for production, so if
you are absolutely new to it, learn that.

No. If you're new to Rails, learn 2.3, the stable version that people
are actually using. Deal with bleeding-edge Rails 3 when it's actually
stable and ready for release.

Best,
