Master-Detail page strategies for social media web site

Posted on 2011-10-14

Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I am currently creating a social media web site similar to a facebook concept.  I have several screens where a user can enter a variable number of records but I will also need to display the records in a way that makes sense to the user.  Typically, I would have one screen where the user user can select the record they would like to edit in a datagrid format and a page containing a webform where the user can edit the record.  In the social media realm, would this come off as too bland?  Is there a more modern way to handle this scenario?  I have not seen too many sites break out of the datagrid mold.  Could someone please provide example sites that implement this in a more modern and fresh look?

have you got a graphic of a mock up of the main page? You could always use silverlight or flash.

If you haven't seen it elsewhere, why do you think others are doing it?

Data grids are prevalent because they work and are reasonably intuitive.
