Community Plugin vs Ultimate Facebook Plugin

We currently have Communities plugin installed. I don’t like the interface and it doesn’t make connecting with other members easy to do.

I have been researching the Ultimate Facebook plugin. It appears it would give our members/users a much better experience, especially since it includes “activity feed”. Am I correct in this assumption?

To give an idea of what we’re looking for in terms of appearance and functionality – we used to have a social network on a previous site provided by NING. It looked very much like a Facebook news feed. It’s that appearance and functionality we’d like to re-create at Neighborhood Boutiques.

Help me understand how best to achieve this with current plugins – especially Ultimate Facebook.

Thanks so much,
