Often referred to as “Facebook in a box” BuddyPress is a plug-in that turns a WordPress website into a social network. At least at first, this is our private area for experimentation. For example, our first Group is an area for internal discussion about changes being coordinated with our hosting provider. Groups can be public, private (invite only) or hidden.

There is lots more in here than you need to know, so feel free to skip ahead to where you see screen recordings of how it operates.
