If you plan on making a social network like Facebook then I would suggest learning either Ruby on Rails or PHP, both of which Treehouse teaches. Ruby on Rails is a really good option for building a social network because it is easy to learn and you can start building some pretty interesting things relatively quickly.

Good luck to you and your startup!

I would start with the Become a Web Designer track it brings you through all the basics really well and if you feel at any point design isn't for you then jump over to the Web Developer Track.
