social networking for free

buddypress, an open source extension to the well known wordpress-µ blogging system, is a rather new social networking software enabling you to run your own little social network. Just for the sake that the world needs a lot of more social networking platforms!

Installing the software was opening the box, customization is just as easy as working with wordpress stylesheets / themes, and the biggest limitations are due to a very uncomforatble right management system which already came with wordpress-µ

Nevertheless, not to forget that buddypress is still in a 1.0 RC version, the most basic elements of “classical” social networking platforms are available in this plugin suite, work fine – and, as from its big brother wordpress, multi user blogging is a real strength in this system.

Now, all what’s still missing is the killer idea for the next social networking platform: is there already one for enthusiasts of twelve-tone music?
