I am planning to start a new social networking website. What should i use for development? Should i use ASP.Net with some silverlight or should i go for a full silverlight app and use MEF?

I have never worked on ASP.Net MVC. Can you direct me to some link that could be helpful? Will it work for a social networking site?

Oh yes, it works perfectly! I am working with a social network for travellers completely built in ASP.NET MVC 3 - tbh learning this way of programming I will probably never go back to using ASP.NET.
It's a bit of a complicated start - i suggest you start off with NerdDinner (http://www.nerddinner.com/), its tutorial is very detailed explains the basics that you'll need to know - basic authentication, data access,
models, views, controllers.
http://www.asp.net/mvc - here's some general starter information about MVC but if you have experience with programming then you may as well go straight to the tutorial at http://weblogs.asp.net/scottgu/archive/2009/04/28/free-asp-net-mvc-nerddinner-tutorial-now-in-html.aspx
Hope you'll like it! I absolutely love it :-)

I have a community of 20-25 groups. I would like these groups to be able to communicate in like a fourm and share photos and even tell their stories in a blog type thing.
Any Ideas for a website kit?

Using Silverlight may not be a good idea as it requires users to have the Silverlight plugin installed. Unless your think your target audience will surely have Silverlight installed, consider using HTML5 features for handling the multimedia stuff within
your social networking website.
