Before I use BP, why not SocialEngine or Peepso?
I stated in a post earlier this week, I was moving from Peepso to BP. The Peepso version was free, not paid. In the past few days, my needs in this area have changed. What would be very helpful is to have a platform where everything worked (chat, videos, photos, groups, ads, extended profiles, polls, etc) and did not require a lot of maintenance. I’m becoming much more busier than expected from hearing our family businesses are growing.
Peepso offered me a $200 for everything, annual cost. I can integrate my Divi theme with it (yay!). It has a good core product, but functionality seems to be limited.
SocialEngine runs on MySql/PHP which I know zero about. It’s core product is about $600 annually. They promote it as a very response platform with lots of 3rd party apps, and new developments in the pipeline.
I need chat, video, groups, photos and albums, extended profiles, polls, news areas, activity feeds, etc. Also, I need something that is mobile responsive!
I’m fairly good with WP and Divi so BP doesn’t scare me. I don’t know the direction to take. Spending lots of money on an untested community is not a step I want to take.
This post is not intended to be negative towards BP or this community. From all that I have read, the support here has been phenomenal.
If an experienced voice can step in, then I would be grateful. Maybe a phone/Skype call would be helpful.
