Do you want to be a part of the next big social network?
I’m looking for people who are interested in the next multi billion dollar startup. The project has been in development for over a year. Our initial valuation is $1.5 million. What we need are some team players who would like to share in the wealth and the workload. This is a tech project involving social networking, end user hotness and our creativity. There is no other social network in existence like the one we are working on.

This project requires the best of the best. No hobbyists inquiries please.
Work from your local testing server and have FTP access to the remote seudo-production domain.
Once this project is ready to launch we will all split ownership based on our production.
Contact Ethan for a Skype interview. (ethanvandal)
That is a pretty bold statement to make. If this legit count me in.
We’ve been consulting with a business advisor that used to work at Bain Capital. This is definitely a legitimate venture and we are very proud to say that we have chosen WP and BP as our core CMS and social networking engines.
Hats off to the great developers here at BuddyPress for providing a stable and reliable platform!
What plugins will you be using?
We have started out with the following plugins and will be tailoring them to our specific needs:
BP Profile As Homepage
BP Activity Stream Hashtags
BP Friends Online
BP Profile Privacy
WP Custom Login Page
BP Skeleton Component (for all custom plugins)
The above mentioned plugins (aside from BP) will be highly modified and contain only traces of the original code. Credit will be given to the original developers for the provision of the base plugin state and inspiration that leads us to our end result.
Nice list. Can I recommend @modemlooper ‘s extended settings plugin:
And BP FriendPress:
I also have skype integrated nicely in my site:
Check it out!
FriendPress looks interesting, possibly something we could build onto. Extended settings seems to be aimed at the very novice BP site owner. Most all of those extended setting can be handled with a custom theme.
The Skype thing is cool, we’ll be implementing it in a different way though.
I looked up these plugins, and a vast majority of them have not been updated in quite some time. Do you plan on just editing them to fit with the version of wp you are using?
We’re actually overhauling these plugins to suit our specific needs. We’ve also added 40+ more plugins since this posting.
So far no compatibility issues have been noticed . Running WP 3.4.2 / BP 1.6.1
EthanVan I am so glad to see you are diggin into this budd but I am trying to do the same thing like designing a social network but due to confidentiality of my project I can’t discuss my niche but is there a way we can share our knowledge together to see if we can work on a niche which would be successful even better than others. I am in Denver, Colorado and I am looking for SERIOUS people to work with. so please let me know.
I don’t see how we can “share” knowledge if you are bound by confidentiality agrement…
Good luck with your project.
How can it be so secretive when your using other developers code? Mark Z. from facebook had to pay big time. You admitted you was using other peoples work with some changes. Fact is, your using their work so do you intend on paying them or making a lame excuse like you changed a function or class name? If you used it in any form I can not see how you could possibly not compensate the developers for their work. Just curious G!
@shawn38 whats the deal on bp friendpress plugin I know it worked. Why did you abandon it? As stated above it was good so whats up?
I never said anything about secrecy. I never said people wouldn’t get compensated if we use their code. And, if you saw the code in the plugins we are gutting you would not be able to say it was unoriginal.
Hope this clears things up for you, G.
