Alright guys for quite some time know I have considered starting a social network. I have looked at 3 options of running it: 1. Drupal - It seems like it can create some really cool sites, but I am having trouble making anything remotely worthwhile for a social network. 2. Buddypress - I normally like wp but for some reason this just seems to be a bit cluddered and inconvenient. 3. Joomla - Not much to say I am feeling a bit "outside" the joomla mindset What are the pros and cons of each and which do you use yourself? Also if you got some links to some good and fast ways to make some cool stuff with it. I would really appreciate it. What are your recommendations for monetizing a social networking site? I know adsense and the like, but I just feel like it ain't worth anoying users with it. I haven't really decided on a specific niche yet, because some of the stuff I have thought about doesn't really lend itself to monetization on a social network. Although I guess I base that upon I don't have any experience with making social networking sites.
