I have been using SE for over a year now and I have found it to be the best social networking script out there. I have tried the pilot group scripts but found them to be cumbersome and not easy to use. www.faceamania.com would use no other script now.

Being a website developer, although i can develop a custom social networking script, but we strongly recommend socialengine for use on a social networking website for our clients. The Prior reasons being the following :
1. Highly Customizable - using TPL - It's quite simple to move around stuff without much php knowledge.
2. Smooth frame of updates coming up at regular intervals.
3. Totally Decoded - Customizing an encoded script is a pain.
4. High availability of Plugins, Mods and Templates.
5. Smooth Server-Script relationship causing not much serverload.
6. Smooth Backend.
5. Wide Range of Plugins and Modifications, which can help someone develop any kind of website, including business listings, shopping portal with affiliate linking ( as we worked on http://zingtree.com), Location Based Dating / Friendship Portal (As on http://sorternity.com), Dedicated to particular topic ( As on http://tennisters.com), Something dedicated to a region ( As on http://asiamagic.com), or maybe simply a clone of facebook like http://feujbook.com.

We would rank SocialEngine as 9/10.

Please read below guidelines.

Topcommunitysoftware provides user reviews on social networking scripts like socialengine, phpfox or boonex dolphin. These out of the box social networking software packages can be used to create highly interactive social networking sites, or to add interactive social features to your existing websites. You'll also find a selection of dating scripts that you can use for dating websites.  Your also find other scripts such as twitter clones, marketplace scripts, and many more.

When selecting to buy a script, we advise you to check three things:

- Open source social networking script?

This means that you'll be able to hire someone to change and customize the site if needed. If the source code is not open, they won't grant you access to the code and no changes will be possible.

- do you have to pay a monthly or yearly licence for the script updates?

Be careful not to fall into the trap of buying a cheap social networking script with huge "update" subscription fees.

- is their an active support community in case you have troubles with your script?

Almways make sure they have a community forum where you see they answer customers' problems.
