Anyone out there done any work with social networking software?
I got to say, this is a subject where I am a complete tyro. I have a Facebook page, I am even friends with NickM on it, but I’m damned if I can see the point. Every time I go have a look at it my mind fills with an overwhelming sense of ‘Why? What is the purpose of this thing?’
Anyway, so that is how ignorant I am.
Right now I have a project where I have to set up a social networking site, and don’t ask why - no answer will be forthcoming. I have had a look around and the relevant packages look to be Elgg, Jomsocial, Dolphin and, maybe, Buddypress.
Anyone want to comment? Anyone set up one of these things and willing to do a little handholding when it comes to the selection? I really and truly have no idea what is and what is not important when it comes to use and features.
