The goal of this group is to foster communication between the developers of Drupal's social networking modules, discuss roadmaps, and collect community input.

Many times I've scratched my head at Drupal why I couldn't create a simple micro-blogging site. All the ingredients and modules are there, such as, Views, Rules, Flag, User management modules, CCK, Content Types. Yet one part was failing, which goes to the core of micro-blogging, to only list content of users you choose to follow. You can flag users, but you can not yet filter content to only list the nodes of the user you flagged.Read more
i'm working on social networking site and currently trying to figure out a way to create something similar to facebook's "interests" section. (ex. i type in a comma separated list of my interests and they show up in my profile as links to a search query of ppl with that interest.)
it seems that "tagging" oneself with interests can automatically provide links to the taxonomy term corresponding to the interest, and there are lot of taxonomy modules to provide addt'l functionality...but i have a few questions:Read more
OK, now that I got your attention with a "catchy" title... and for those who didn't have a heart attack:
(This thread is specifically for Alex.K. However, everybody's welcome to jump in.)
This is not a new API. This is a "glue API". This is the short version:
- You install it
- You tell it which "relation" module it should talk to
- That's it
From then on, any Drupal module has access to a generic set of functions to see if two people have an established relation, who the "related" users are, and so on.Read more
thanks a lot for drupal and all your efforts! since quite some time I
play around wit drupal and use it as it comes. thanks to the easy
handling of drupal!
this was sufficient up to now. however, for a upcoming project I have
the feel that my average drupal knowledge is not sufficient and i
have also to work with the profiles the first time.
i would like to establish a database for organisations (6000+) were
they enter themselves. i guess, this can easily done with the
profiles. however, I have the feeling that it is quite limited when I
We are looking for a talented Drupal developer to help us with a current site in development. IE6 & 7 is driving us NUTS! We need someone to come in with theming experience to help us fix many of the little inconsistent bugs across browsers. Experience with Drigg would be awesome! Looking for someone to start immediately.
After 7541 lines between code, comments and documentation by Tony Mobily and Marius Ooms, after an attempt bit-murder, after heated discussions with the "guys and ladies who count", after the typical last minute major rewrite suggested (to me: ordered) by the person that makes D7 possible... after all this:
FriendList is finally ready.
There is no official release, but only because I really want to get it perfect. Areas of interest:
- Documentation. We rewrite a bug chunk the very last minute... is the documentation 100000% current? (especially the developers' doc)

Module Developer (or customize existing modules) and Social Networking Site Creation Consultant | DPN
I am building a website and have come far along, but I need the following:
-A module (Mugshot) to be customized or based off to work with CCK, Views, User Profile
-Help Getting the "Social Networking Community" part of the site set up correctly (Organic Groups, Buddylist, etc)
-Help getting a Flex/Air app to be able to add nodes and comments to my site from remote locations (I'm having trouble with Logging In).
After completing a working Activity Log module, and what I consider a state of the art FriendList module, I am now about to start phase 3 of my project: making sure that Drupal is able to be an OpenSocial container.
After a bit of research, I found:
- http://drupal.org/project/opensocial -- No code, no clear description of what it is
- http://drupal.org/project/opensocial-container - No code. A mock web site.
Drupal effectively ignoring OpenSocial is a huge problem, that needs fixing.
So, here is what I would like to know:
I've spent a good deal of time working on a social networking site for a client. I started from scratch thinking it would just be a matter of installing a few modules and configuration. Man was I wrong. I've learned a lot more than I originally thought and I'm almost done with the site but I'm just done. I need to get this site completed and out of my way without leaving the client hanging.
The site, as it is, is here: http://myfishingfacts.abstractional.comRead more
Activity stream functionality (eg Facebook's activity stream) is an increasingly popular feature for social websites. It's also a very complex feature both in terms of functionality and architecture, so it's unfortunate that we've got developer fragmentation in this area.
Luckily, we have the power to collaborate! The goal of this analysis is to understand the differences of the main activity stream modules and ideally, spur cooperation between the maintainers on fewer projects, or to at least understand why four essentially competing projects are necessary.Read more

I need to create a social networking site with Drupal 6 (yay). As a social networking site, there is obviously a need for an "Activity log" of some sort. The Activity module had its last commit abut 4 months ago -- and judging from the issue queue, that's not because it's immaculate.
Then, I read this message:
I am not sure what "Content log messages" are. However, I was thinking: would a module that exports just:
1) A database structure
2) Rules integration to "add" a record and that's it
The new FriendList module is coming along nicely. I have finished the Views integration, which -- I am happy to say -- is really quite something. It took longer to integrate with "views" than it took to write the whole module!
Anyhow, I am now battling a new monster: "Rules". Rules' main developer is on holiday. So, no hard-core help there either!
If you know Rules, and would like to help me test what I did (and tell me how to test it...!), please hop here:Read more
