    Social Network Software/Script Recommendations

    Hello All,

    First off, if there's a recent thread on my topic you're welcome to point me there...

    I am looking for a Social Network Software/Script solution for my growing website. Right now it's just a blog but we're expanding to have like I said a social network attached to it.

    I'm in the infancy stages of finding a self-hosted solution so I'm open to recommendations.

    I've looked over:

    phpfox
    Drupal
    socialengine.net
    Dolphin 7
    jomsocial
    Ning

    I'll need something that can handle 20,000 page views a day to start and it'll rise from there.

    I realize alot of the traffic handling is on the server-side but I've heard some solutions don't handle alot of simultaneous users well.

    I've heared vbulletin will be expanding in to more a full social solution but that's just hearsay. I LOVE their message board functionality.

    Hit me back if you need more info.

    Any help based on experience will be very much appreciated.

    Ken

    Hi snecz,

    Yes I have a Wordpress blog and I admit that I haven't really looked at Buddypress but isn't BP just strictly a message board?

    No, I think it's a full package with bbpress (2.0) forum. If you already have wp and registered users you should check it out.
