This is dependent upon the industry your business is involved in.

If you're an exotic lumber import export business, I would say learning html and css would not be a good use of your time. However, if you are in a company that does 90% of business through developing websites and web properties, then taking time to at least learn the framework of html and css would imo be a good use of time.

It depends on your business, the amount of design work you need done, and importance of deadlines involved

In order to keep this answer simple, if you have tight deadlines and at least 6 hours of design work estimated per day for the foreseeable future, the answer is hire in-house, if not, outsource.

The answer to that question really hinges on what the niche of the social network is.

There are a million ways to monetize any website, it all comes down to identifying your audience and what state of mind they are in while navigating your webpage.
