    This topic came up so need some input.

    Besides the social side of buddypress, what are other uses for groups if you take away the discussion part. A school can create groups (band, football, chess, etc.) as ‘container’ for the students participating but without discussions through forum, what’s the point?

    You have status updates as well. Similar to facebook pages. Grouping based on topic.

    You can also look at groups like events (in some cases). So all joined members are attendees. Although there are several events-based plugins for BuddyPress…

    Groups can also have their own blogs (in subsites) which can be made private. So for each grade or each school organization, teacher/admin can create posts and students can have discussions via post comments. No forum, no problema.

    It just seems many functions can be somewhat duplicated without buddypress so eventually it’ll be a decision if full social features from buddypress is actually needed or not. Thanks for each of your response.
