I am new at buddy press and multi site. I have a facebook group, http://www.facebook.com/southaustinmemories that has over 2000 members. We have tons of photos. Trying to preserve the history of old South Ausitn.
I initially wanted a buddy press site. Can have forums and groups. I will post pictures and such. On the facebook group, I allow anyone to post pictures, videos, comments. I police it some. I would like to continue this. At the same time, I have a couple of members that would probably blog if I gave them the platform.
I am leaning very heavily to the Social Theme right now, but would like some input, before I proceed. I would like to monetize the web site. Any thoughts or ideas would be appreciated.
It looks like you can have a multi site with enough plugins to make it look like buddy press, but is it worth all the trouble if you are not going to have lots of other blogs on the site. At least that is what I have planned right now.
