    I'm thinking about creating a new site, think of if you were the first twitter, facebook, or whatever? What's a good all around CMS that's easy to use and lets you add all of the typical (as well as custom) parameters that you want, like:

    Create account
    Email confirmation
    Profile page for each user
    Users settings pages
    The ability to use and sort things by tags

    Just to name a few?

    This site has specific needs (some that will change / expand over time), so it's not for wordpress, etc.

    Thank you!

    If you're thinking of building your own social media platform, have you considered Ning.com?

    Try,

    JCow, Elgg, Dolphin, Drupal or Concrete5.

    Just go and visit demo site for these patforms and decide yourself based on your needs.

    Joomla is also a good alternative. Thousands of free plug-ins and very flexible...

    Just wondering, do your suggestions JCow, Elgg, Dolphin, Drupal, Concrete5 or Joomla all allow you to let users create their own profiles (with profile pages) and tag things?

    I'll recommend Drupal. You can customize a lot on it.

    I personally recommend JOOMLA for community site (like the one you are asking for) because its far more easy to use than DRUPAL. Anyways its my opinion, everyone is entitled to one.

    Thanks for all the suggestions. For example, does anybody know what CMS cam4.com (Warning: adult content) is using?

    In the sandbox. Again.
    Check to see if Drupal has the modules you need. If not, you can roll your own with Ruby on Rails.

    Use Drupal. Its learning curve is steep at the beginning, yet you get incredibly powerful software with which you'll be able to build anything even without being a PHP developer. Drupal has over 8,000 modules to build the site with.

    Does Ruby on Rails require knowing how to do a lot of coding?
