    Hi,

    I wanted some information on social networking sites and the available CMS which can be used on them. I know that Social engine is one of the options... But just wanted to know what are the other available options and which of them is best if we want a website like Twitter.

    Thanks in Advance for the help :)

    Pat

    These days, social networking sites are increasingly gaining popularity due to its easy access and rich content. Social networking sites provides a platform where people can create network among people, share their interests or activities. It has exploded worldwide as it provides means for users to interact over the internet through scraps, chat, e-mail or instant messaging.

    I still prefer SE4, especially with the modules, and I have spent a lot of time and $$$ figuring out how to optimize it for the quickest speed. Really you can't beat it unless you have something custom coded IMO but a lot of guys like PHPfox.

    Thanks for the replies guys. However we finally decided to use our own home made cms due to the huge list of modifications that were needed.

    Its always good to use a custom one as it stands you out from the crowd and make yours unique from million others using the same thing. Good luck with your choice.
