I agree totally with the reviewer who rated this poor. Free is relative, I have been using this script which really should be considered beta with all the script problems and bugs it continues to have. I upgraded several times beginning with 7.0 now thru 7.4 and still the issues remain that I thought would be resolved.
My main goal was to have a videocentric social network in my niche and the videos failed miserably. I went from not being able to upload videos at all, to videos that were horrible in quality, to improved quality but can't link or embed anywhere cuz the embed code is crap.
This a script that ONLY egghead programmers can appreciate and IS NOT for the average user. Get ready to have a lot of headaches and deal with scammy programmers to "fix" your problems and a user forum full of arrogant eggheads who spend more time insulting the poor souls who have legitimate questions, blaming them and not answering or solving the problems.
I would not reccomend this script to anyone. For a so-called "free" programs I have spent in the course of 2 years literally thousands and it still isn't working as it should. If you like stress and headaches then, yeah, go ahead and use this. However, this is the most un-user friendly social networking script I have used and I have used many (including, but not limited to, WordPress, Joomla, JomSocial, phpFox, Drupal, Elgg, Ning, SocialGo, etc. just to name a few). After 2 years of struggling with this piece of crapware I am totally frustrated and it has cost me big in lost time, energy and money. Even to this day, I still cannot get the members on my website to post content because the interface is just too confusing and useless for practical purposes. Steer clear of this script, their marketing department did a great on keeping this crapware on the top of the search engine lists but it's terrible. Take is from somebody who spent more than just a couple of days reviewing it. I hate it, worst mistake of my life!
If your site is family friendly then I recommend Ning, superior in every way of those mentioned based solely on userfriendliness and ability to handle videos. But if your site is adult oriented then Ning won't work for you because they dropped Red Light District and stopped allowing adults sites. I'm still looking for an alternative and haven't found one yet. . .
