Mongo won't grow all the way with you but if it's what you know and you don't have too complex a data model it can at least get you to the point where you can regroup and figure out a better longterm solution. A database in the hand is worth two in the bush & all.

Cassandra is useless for what you're trying to do. When you need someplace to collect high-volume analytics or something take another look at it.

Thanks for voiding out Cassandra. Any idea about the other multi-model/graph databases mentioned above?

I've never used any but from what I know about them, a social network seems like a good fit for graph dbs.

Btw, great work with massive.js, if I ever think of using RDBMS for anything in my project, I will keep it in mind!
