Is it possible to making a social network using AngularJS


1 Answer

AngularJS certainly can be used to build a social network (or any other type of web application), but as it's a frontend framework, you can only use it to build the interface of the app.

As with any client-side framework, you'll still need a server, a database and so on, to build a real social network. AngularJS can only be used to display the data and the interface of the app, but that data still has to be stored somewhere, and retrieved (based on your app logic) from someplace.
