BuddyPress is the social networking plugin for WordPress that enables you to build your own Facebook. Whether you want to create a social space for your friends and family, develop a collaborative environment for your co-workers and colleagues, or somewhere in-between, the free and flexible BuddyPress plugin is for you.
While any good WordPress theme should work with this social network in a box plugin, choosing a purpose built template not only saves you lots of time and effort but also ensures that each feature of the plugin will match the rest of your website.
By choosing a theme with a good selection of BuddyPress page templates, your visitors will be treated to a consistent user experience as they move through your website. This covers the registration and login pages, the activity feeds, member profiles, private messaging tools, and more.
Some of these themes have also been built especially to integrate with the bbPress plugin. This is another tool for WordPress that lets you add social features to your site, this time in the form of discussion boards. Look out for support for membership plugins, e-commerce tools, and calendaring plugins if you want to charge your users a fee for accessing your site, sell items online, or manage virtual or offline events.
BuddyPress and its add-ons offer a wealth of social networking features that when combined with WordPress and the right theme, provide unlimited possibilities.
