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.
