This one is for the Internet Entrepreneur. If your business or organization finds FaceBook useful, but far to restricting, then you're not alone. The good news is that you have options. Did you know that you can purchase a FaceBook clone script of your very own? It's not exactly like FB but it comes with many of the FaceBook features and they are aggressively adding more features by the month. And I must say, with more than 20 years of experience as an on line developer, these cats have their act together.
The (WordPress based) system is driven by (up to) 25 plugins. The core plugin for the Peepso system is FREE. You can use it indefinitely without charge, but it comes with just very basic functions, yet enough to run a meeting place. But as you wish to add functionality you need to install and configure the plugin responsible for that function. This is a BRILLIANT approach as then you only put load on your server for the functions you are actually using. And in addition, that approach gives you meticulous control over your feature set.
I've installed a registered version of this script at kratomix.org and while I'm still configuring this system for my own use (it's very involved, but simple to understand) so far, I have not bumped into a single technical issue. Their most excellent forum (a Peepso install, in of itself) has answered the few questions I've had. But if you google for feedback for this system, you'll find very few negative comments. This speaks volumes to a techie like me.
