    Need some software for a social network.

    I am using webscribble and I need to change it ..explained below... I was wondering if anyone has any ideas or experiences. My site has to allow for profiles like facebook sort of and allow uploading directly to the site of music and videos and pictures etc.. canadianhomegrown (dot) ca is the site. I just really need other software.

    It looks so good cause its cheap and guess what its cheap! I had to go to a different server because of the softwares needs so now I pay two different hosting companies. I had so many problems the searchs do not work such as search for people in an area or in an age group. Still cant upload music they say I have to adjust the PHP on the hosting site and I have no idea how to do and they wont and neither will godaddy.com so the reason I have the site is so musicians can upload video and music and well it does not work at all so ...i have a site looks good but does not function.

    I would like to get rid of it and start over I just need to find some better software and just cut my losses any one know of a different software?

    Thank you so much!

    I heard phpfox is the de facto standard for small social networks. They have tried to mimic Myspace. But you can put your own themes.

    These are some prepackaged scripts that has features of a social network like Facebook and Myspace. You just need to customized their default design template.

    I wouldn't recommend altrasoft to my worst enemy! Webscribble and Altrasoft are in the same league -- both a set of crooks with a pretty looking interface -- Behind the interfaces, well... you're screwed.

    I demoed almost everything after making the decision to learn Drupal. NYTimes, fastcompany.com, teamsugar.com, parentsclick.com all use Drupal for their social communities.

    I am almost done with my own social network , but I had to stop working on that to raise some money. I would gladly help you start anew with Drupal. Please PM me if you would be interested.

    PHPfox.com is def. my favorite I use to run a site with them, and the script is by far (in my eyes) the most professional/clean social networking platform/script out there

    Good luck starting up your site
