I'm working on creating a social media network and one of the key components I would like to incorporate would be "community ads" such as the one's used by Facebook. Any user can create an ad and has access to a number of targeting options and then can upload text/image and pay right on the site. SocialEngineAddons developed something like this for Social Engine: http://www.socialengine.com/customize/se4/mod-page?mod_id=498 but I'd much rather use Drupal.
I guess my question would be, is there a module available in Drupal with similar functionality, do I have to use a handful of modules to achieve my goal or should I hire out?
