Questions before Building a new social network site

I'm looking forward to build a social network site with many facebook/Linked-in similarities. A fast intro :
I didn't use drupal before, but I'm willing to learn how to use it.
I'm not a programmer, but I know some basics in programming. I know Drupal is not easy to fully understand, but I have enough time to learn with fast pace.
Maybe it's some fake hope, but I can see that the idea of the website is not there although needed, and I'm expecting the site to grow.

My questions :

Blogging type

Hello friends,

Are the dynamics of blogging changing ?

I am trying to come up with a social network site, weighing options of blogging modules (microblog/twitter and statuses)

Some blogging modules don't have dependencies ( either User rationships or OG rules) which sounds like they do broadcast.
Its like only statuses has a User relationship context

So is sharing "Stories" shifting between from groups to all sitewide members."every one"

Thanks for your opnions

Selección de grupos al crear contenido

Buenas a todos...
tengo un pequeño problema que no se como gestionarlo.

Tengo configurado drupal con grupos privados y en cada grupo sus respectivos administradores y usuarios.

El problema viene cuando un administrador quiere crear un contenido (documento, evento, etc...) a la hora de seleccionar el grupo ve el listado de TODOS los grupos existentes en la plataforma en vez de únicamente los suyos, es decir, en los que esta matriculado y/o es administrador.

Como podría gestionar para que solamente viesen sus grupos?

Gracias a todos de antemano!

Editar vistas y desplegable de crear contenido

Buenas tardes, estoy empezando con Drupal 7 tras mucho tiempo con la versión 6 y me encuentro con mis primeros problemas.

Como puedo editar una vista directamente desde la propia página sin tener que ir a menú > estructura > views y buscar la vista que sea? Es decir, en Drupal 6 aparecía un "botón" para editar la vista directamente.

Y ya que estamos... como puedo poder el típico desplegable de Drupal 6 para que un usuario pueda crear un Blog, Documento, etc... en un grupo?
