    Hello,
    I was searching for ideas on how to implement a professional social network (targeting my region) and while asking question @ Warrior Forum someone suggested BuddyPress.

    I ask, can BuddyPress help me to setup a simple professional social network likendin?

    Here’s a list of do’s:
    A Directory for/of Professionals
    1. Directory Listing of Members by Criteria (Profession or others)
    2. Extended Members Profile ADD/DELETE/EDIT (Name, Address, Picture, Education)
    3. Rotate/Displays Selected Members Pic on homepage
    4. Login Registration or Facebook
    5. Mobile Version: access website using mobile devices
    6. Public / Private Chat: Members can chat with each other.
    7. Forum
    8. Moderators Login
    9. Admin Login
    10. Groups: Members can create groups
    11. Projects: Members can start projects and invite other members to join (kind of groups)
    12. Picture Upload and Sharing
    13. Home Page / News: Post News Articles or Events
    14. Event Calendar

    Extra

    15. Blog/Forum
    16. Job Posting by Companies

    BuddyPress with the help of the right plugins from the WordPress plugin repository (https://wordpress.org/plugins/) can do everything you’ve mentioned.

    11. Projects: Members can start projects and invite other members to join (kind of groups)

    This is the one point I’m not sure about off the top of my head. It may need some custom code as I’m not aware of a plugin that does this.

    Do you freelance or where can I get excellent WordPress Coders/Designers to help me set it up?

    The BuddyPress Jobs Board is the best place to start:
