In a time when "social networks"are becoming what we think of as "websites," JomSocial is a huge opportunity for almost any Joomla website owner.
When we first started experimenting with JomSocial almost a year ago, we were impressed with the potential of building your own social network inside your existing Joomla site. It seemed to us that Azrul and his talented team had developed something very cool, and very useful, that would really blossom over time.
Now, the flower has fruited, and JomSocial has really arrived.
The release of version 1.5 in mid-October showed off just how far Azrul & company, and the community of users and developers interacting around it, have come.
What are some of the new features that make JomSocial 1.5 so cool?
- Photo and Video Support for Groups
- Photo Tagging
- Customizable Profile Types
- Community Content Sharing
- Integration with Facebook Connect
JomSocial integrates seamlessly with your Joomla 1.5 site and allows you to engage your users in a myriad of ways.
And to make it even better, a strong community of developers have built an impressive library of additional add-ons that you can use to customize your network and meet your audience's needs.
We highly recommend any Joomla site owner looking to engage a community to take a deep look at JomSocial. Need to see JomSocial in action? Their extensive showcase has over two dozen examples from a wide range of markets and audiences.
