thoughts, shares, links, and the like…

In my class research in web 2.0 i’ve been propagandaing for WordPress being able to be a social network service (SNS) as facebook and myspace.

This ability came to my notice, when I heard about Buddypress, which is a project of Andy Peatling‘s.

Other projects are out there, gigaom.com describes DiSo and it’s abilities as a SNS based on a WordPress foundation:

“But those who already use WordPress probably want to build a strong and persistent online presence and identity. Plus they’re the geeky sort, with whom with the idea of a unified, distributed social network might resonate. And at least some of them are refocusing on blogging. The next hot social network might just be built out of blogs.”

Yes, I am one of them.
