    Currenlty, several popular social network softwares seem good enough for the networking needs. Why bother to build new social network websites? Customers do not care whether the software they are using is open-source or not.They care wehther the things they use satisfy their needs or not, whether the things are easy to use or not and of cource, whether the things are free or not.

      The open source projects can help people who want to start their own websites with social functions.

      For example, you want to start movie review sites, food recipe sites. All these sites need user profile functions, user to user private or public messages, uploading files, photos, user blogs, forum etc.

      These open source projects can help you realize those functions right away. You do not have to start from a scratch, which can take a lot of time to do.
