      • Wordpress experience
        • Same code base, helped a lot
    • The Problem
      • Lack of user to user interaction
      • User persistence and “home”
      Before After
    • The Solution
      • Forums – Encourage user to user interactions and discussions
      • Social Network – Create a home for them on your site
    • Software Stack
      • Wordpress MU – Run multiple blogs on the same install
      • buddyPress – Social networking features
      • bbPress - Forums
    • Advantages
      • Encourage other interactions (not just poster to users)
      • Create a niche
      • Increase time on site and activity
      • Increase page views
    • Disadvantages
      • Pre-1.0 software changes rapidly
      • Communities aren’t as active
      • Not extremely well documented (ala Wordpress)
    • Easy Part
