BuddyPress & MultiSite

I AM SOOOOOOOO LOST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I used to consider myself a wordpress pro, I run all my clients on wordpress, but BAM!!! I jump into this whole new world of multisite and buddypress, adding social on top of that, and I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO LOST, I can't even wrap my mind around it LOL

I'm "trying" - by which I mean "failing" - to setup Social on Buddypress, for my main website - 6thdegreeof.me - for a social experiment I am doing. The sole reason I went multisite in the first place, was because I thought being able to offer personal blogs down the road as part of the experiment would be a great idea, so might as well do it right from the start.


HOURS upon HOURS later - this all started before I became a WPMU Dev Member - I'm getting off my high horse, and begging for help in the entire setup process of buddypress/social.

Please help me random person at the other end of this message, you're my only hope (yes I happen to like star wars)(no, I do not live in my mothers basement)
