Drupal 6 Social Networking
Build A Social or Community Web Site With Friends Lists, Groups, Custom User Profiles, and Much MoreeBook - 2009
This book is packed with clear instructions and careful explanations for creating a powerful Social Networking web site using Drupal 6. With each chapter, you add new features and content until the Social Network is ready to be released to the Internet where it can grow. By the end of this book, you will have a powerful Social Network either like that of the case-study, or of your own design based on the setup and features the book walks through. This book is aimed at anyone looking to create their own social networking web site, including: Businesses - building a Social Network around a product or service can improve your company profile and increase customer loyalty. Alternatively, an internal social network gives you employees a place to keep resources, discuss ideas, raise concerns, and keep up to date on company policies. Hobbyists - create a community around your hobbies and interests; create a local or distributed user group. Organisations & Charities - Raise your profile, promote your events / services / fundraisers and get help from the community in organizing them. Families - For large families based across the country or across the globe, keep up to date with everyone, and let everyone know what you are up to. You don't need any experience of Drupal or PHP to use this book. If you are a Drupal user you will find this book a great way to rapidly tailor an existing installation into a social-orientated web site.
