Project Description:
This project is simply for your opinion/input on which solution I should use for starting a social networking site. I considered using Ning.com, but it is not flexible enough, so am now looking elsewhere. It's a social network for pet owners. I currently have a mysql database with about 3000 users. I would like to be able to import my current user database into the new one. Some of the options I'm considering: SocialGo.com Elgg.org Jomsocial DZOIC.com/Handshake SocialEngine.com KickApps.com Buddypress.com Boonex.com CommunityBuilder PHPFox.com ... Or something else? A custom script? Some of the features I'd like: -Simple and attractive layout -Fast / PHP / mysql based -Ability for members to upload a profile picture, personal photos/videos. -Ability to post messages on other users pages, and send private messages to other users. -Signup process will ask for name, email, location, gender, age, and personal description. -Ability for members to create groups. -Nice, but not required: ability to make a google map of user locations. -Nice, but not required: ability for users to get a branded url, like www.mysocialsite.com/username/ I'm looking for your input/advice/insight on which I should use. Please post your bid, along with a short description of which of the above/other software/scripts/solutions you have experience with. Thank you for reading! P.S. I will eventually be looking for someone to actually work on the site itself
