I would look into Drupal (drupal.org)
It's not that hard. Getting content and people to keep coming is the difficult part.
But the answer is not to simple. Question is whether you want to code one or you want pre-packed software package.
But if you want software to do so. Then there are many options:
1. Ning (open source and simple but few options)
2. Drupal.org (again free with nicely packed features)
3. Dolphin (used to be open source once but you can download previous version)
4. Elgg (free + very few options are available but ok for begginers)
5. Xoops (free + nice set of options difficult to configure)
This list is endless....
Creating a Social Network took a lot of time for me. I First analysed what are the features available and analysed how others have done and started my own
I used ning.com but i got a message that it will not be free again.
I think you need templates. a website like http://creationspire.com/ can provide you your templates.
You should copy what works.
Make an outline of the layout of pages of the popular social networking sites like facebook and myspace then from that create your own.
There are numerous "downloadable" free open source scripts out there you can use to start a site like myspace,twitter, digg... Check out this list i complied: http://hubpages.com/t/1ee8be
