Best free social networking script? (myspace software)

Discussion in 'Content Management' started by compdee, Nov 8, 2007.

    Okay, I’m looking for FREE social networking software (something like myspace clone)… or something really cheap like $20.

    I checked phpizabi and aroundme.
    Anyone use this? How do you like it?

    Is there something better that phpizabi?

    Thanks

    Yes there is a really good one called Dolphin by boonex. It is probably up there with a myspace site.

    Sadly there are no good free community scripts ( phpibazi has most addons paid ) . A somewhat decent script is phpfox ( i still dont recommend it ) but its out of your budget.

    I'm going to give Boonex a shot...I'm now hearing *better* feedback for it, it appears as though things arent as bad as they used to be. I guess I'll find out soon enough.

    I still like Boonex's demo. I know a lot of people want more features, but the out-of-box ones are more than enough for what I was looking to do.

    If you can post a link when your project goes live, I would really appreciate it.

    Seeing a script in action is always a help.

    phpizabi is okay but I wouldn't recommend them. Once you get in, they have a whole bunch of plugins for sale- without them your site will be very limited. I guess the same can be said about phpfox, but at least with fox there's a very active webmaster/developers community forum so you can also get a lot of free help. Socialengine I heard is pretty good, but again it's not free.

    OpenPNE is a free social networking platform but since it's developed in Japan, the English documentation's still not quite there. Probably worth giving a shot though

    Do a search on this forum about threads on phpFox and I'm sure you'll change your opinion. ;)

    ALERT: ilook is a shill, beware!

    I am not promoting anything, I just provide links to consider and there is nothing to trust or not trust. And the fact that ilook spends so much time and efforts marking all posts about the software with hysterical shrills and red color tells about the fact that he is paid well for that. The problem is he is not professional flooder and even can not provide any bug lists, which he states are present in the script.

    I will continue answering here as soon as there are some real bug lists or other factual material, answering a crazy little shill answering machine seems humiliating for me, let him continue his black pr campaign all alone until he is banned or his balls are eaten.

    See you some time, thanks.

    Hello!
    My name is Frank, I represent ABK-Soft here from now on. We really need this text to be present here, dear admins, this is not a duplicate account, we one by one try to reply to the claims and continue getting banned. Soon we will not have anyone left in the company to publish this.

    Our designer and support manager Andrew who is indeed a Russian, has been just banned here for spamming reasons, also Sam, although all they wanted was to help the clients, if there are any real clients here. I ask the moderators to look into the problem well, because there are posts all over the forums made by one and the same person, naming our company ABK-Soft scam, spam and so on, and I am OBLIGED to help him, to see to his problems and to do my job. Because this IS my job.
    I ask Socialnetworker to provide his order number, because I need to look for his tickets in the members' area. If there are indeed any problems, or rude behaviour of our managers, the guilty will be immediately fired and all the possible help will be provided.
    Also, I ask the administrators not to allow any nationalism in here, because this is not a forum where the fascists meet or anything like this. Dmitry is a Russian, Andrew is a Russian as well, but this does not allow users to use bad language like "d..head", "jerk", "Russian worm", etc. This is completely unappropriate for such a decent forum. It is an insult.
    I also want to draw the administrators' attention to the fact that such users' behavior and personal insults is noticed by all the users, what can be clearly seen in their comments, like "please stop the spam", "if you are a competetor try to invent some other way of defeating", etc. Everything can be easily found here.
    I am not saying of course that this user can not be our current client, but to prove this all I need is the order number.
    Again, I need to say that I will have to post this reply everywhere where this user has been complaining, because we found this forum one of these days, we would have been working here and providing customer service here for a long time already, should we have found it earlier. But unfortunately we have never seen these threads. Please note that I am not advertizing anything, I am not spamming, all I need to do is to help the clients that probably have some problems with the support department, show the other possible clients in every thread that we really care about what is being said about us, and take appropriate measures.
    Thank you very much for your business,
    Frank Rowley,
    ABK-Soft LTD.
