WordPress is a great content management system to use to power a blog. That’s not the only thing you can do with it though. Plugins such as WP Symposium enable you to use WordPress to power your very own social network with a forum, activity wall, member directory, and a whole lot more. If you have settled on using WP Symposium to run your social network, you shouldn’t miss these 3 plugins:
WP Symposium: turns your website into a social network. Your members will have a profile page, chats, groups, and other features to keep them busy.
WP Symposium Blog Post: developed for those of you who still would like to maintain a blog while growing your community.
WP Symposium Toolbar: the plugin is in beta phase but worth a look. It lets you customize your social network’s toolbar and choose the items that should be displayed.
WP Symposium is not the only plugin you can use to turn your WordPress site into a social network. If you are using it, you need to consider installing the above plugins.
