Social Network Tool
February 15, 2005 5:05 PM   Subscribe

Our social network organization is looking for a web tool. Think Yahoo Groups with a few more features and better customization. Any suggestions which tools or service providers to look closer at? (More inside)

The tool should allow members to search the member database and post to a bulletin board. Admin users should be able to publish web pages and photos, as well as configure which pages are public and which are members-only. If the tool enables us to collect membership fees and sell tickets to events (by processing credit cards), so much the better.

It can either be software that we install at a regular web hosting company (the WordPress model) or a service provided by an application service provider (the Yahoo Groups model). We want to get away from our custom-written apps and in-house web hosting, as that is too expensive to maintain.

Depending on how comfortable you are learning the system, Drupal has everything you need.

I've always heard mention of BaseCamp in discussions like this. I have no personal experience with it, but it looks interesting all the same.

I second the Drupal recommendation. Super easy to set up if you use one of the default templates.
