Re: The BuddyPress next generation API, the journey begins

Very nice, this is a great conversation starter.

In one sentence I would describe BuddyPress as: “Social networking in a box. An easy way to start your own niche social network”.

Lots of other social network tools try to define themselves as a do-it-all platforms that can be manipulated in all manner of ways, but then they don’t work so well out of the box or without some extensive configuration. Even though BP is also highly extensible, I’ve always thought the primary focus should be providing something that the non-techies can work with without much time investment. This is pretty much the same philosophy as WordPress.
