    No, not trying to build the next facebook. Just need a good social network script for a niche group. Mostly focussed on uploading albums/pics and sharing/rating them, and adding friends etc. A way to lock it down to members-only would be good too, though I can modify it to do that.

    Looked at phpfox, okphp, etc.. but don't really want to pay for a script since i'm doing this for free.

    While i'm at it, what site do you guys use to find scripts?

    (Yes i could make it in drupal but it's not worth the effort. It's just a small group that wants an online place to share stuff)

    Yeah i've been googling around a lot today, and can't really find anything that suits it.

    Was really hoping not to waste lots of time on this.. ah well.. looks like it'll be drupal.

    I wrestled with Elgg for a bit, wasn't too impressed when it came to actually modifying it.

    Luvdbyless or whatever it's called, the Rails one, looks really good.. but my host doesn't have Rails!

    Here's a list from Mashable.

    http://mashable.com/2007/07/25/open-source-social-platforms/

    If you've got some experience with some of those, I would be interested to hear your experiences. I've got a niche I'd like to explore with a social network site, but I haven't gotten into the code of any of the platforms yet.

    That's a branded hosted service. I'm looking for a standalone script.

    Supergeek, thanks for that.. will go through them tomorrow.
