Which Software is Best to Build A Social Network Site?

I'm thinking of building a website with members having their own accounts and info separately like that of a social network. How can I get started on this? I mean suggest some Social Networking Software Suit (other than Dolphin, which I've tried already but its complicated). Please suggest some simple software.

If you would like all you mentioned, plus an easy-to-theme platform, I would suggest Concrete5. You can do almost anything, and it's very simple for users to go around the pages and even create their own, you just have to adjust the permissions.

Which Software is Best to Build A Social Network Site?

i have tried various suites like joomla, dolphin, drupal.
I was really happy with phpBB because of its stability and how it can be extended from just a bulletin board software to a full flexed social networking software.
And the community of phpBB offers great support.

With the social network mod for phpBB you can create an awesome social networking site within phpBB itself with friend request approval / denial system and status posting, commenting and even a footer chat like facebook

Even though you said that you do not want to use Dolphin, it is probably the most powerful of the free ones out there. Just look up a manual or something, and eventually you will find a way to make ti work Smile

Dolphin is the best but the problem is its free , but we have to bear their ads and boonex links.
elgg is ok, but, the installation of modules, plugins etc are little complicated.
also there is some extensions for joomla called joomsocial which will provide social networking features to ur joomla site.
and I my experiance, the simple, free and most flexible one is buddypress with wordpress.

I think Buddyprees with Wordpress is nice enough and its backed by a great and large community in which help is a person away. I experimented with it once and I liked it more so then some of the others that were mentioned.

I agree with Tys Owner. Today you can develop almost any website with WordPress and with this BuddyPress plugin, it makes creating a large community (social network) easy and fun. There is no borders with WordPress as you can develop your community in anyway you like.

Another one I had played with recently is Oxwall. I find it very easy to use. It's also a free and open source software.

Currently, 'Social Engine' is unbeatable and in 1st place. In second position I'd place 'Anahita'. the third position goes to 'Jomsocial'. Another minor listing would be 'JCow'. Any of these mentioned scripts are Very Good!
