I think the resounding vote from this forum (since it is an ASP.NET forum) is going to be 'Yes'! Now go ask this question in a PHP forum and they will probably vote the inverse.
ASP.NET 4.0 is technology sitting atop a robust and mature .NET framework with a lot of choices and ways to implement solutions. There is no reason you could not build a fantastic social networking site using ASP.NET.
You may want to take a look to the following resource on creating Social Networking applications using ASP.NET:

like the others said, ASP.NET is a good choice for that ;-) If you want to compare it with PHP...Facebook started with PHP and had some (many) problems with it.
