Description

Create a social framework in Drupal that ties existing contrib modules together so that Drupal social sites can be more easily rolled out.

The Drupal community has built a number of contrib modules to add interactivity into multi-user Drupal sites. Aggregated, they represent most of the features needed and wanted for building a social site. Unfortunately, finding, evaluating, and integrating these modules together is very time-intensive due to the varying quality of contrib modules.

Creating a social framework in Drupal will pull together these modules into a cohesive package.
