What’s all this Buddypress Talk?

Bloggers and web pros alike are buzzing about this open source endeavor called Buddypress. Buddypress is an add on to your WordPress MU (multi-user) install that adds a dynamic, extensible, and robust social networking aspect to your site. You can have user profiles, feeds, commenting and many of the other fun goodies that come along with a social media site. I can see this as being a very powerful tool for small groups and associations who want to keep in touch online. For now Buddypress is still in Beta but it is already a powerful tool in use by some very interesting groups. I am excited to see where it will go and how I can use it in future projects.
