is it possible to use MU subdomains AS buddypress profiles?

In a nutshell I'm working on creating a social network for a client and they want subdomain profile pages like one might see on deviantart where the profile is in fact profile.socialnetwork.com, we figured use Wordpress MU with buddypress functionality. Is this possible? Or should I go strictly with WPMU and just add functions with plugins (i.e., forums, activity walls etc)?

    Hi there @thebigjay,

    Hope you're well today and thanks for your question.

    This isn't technically possible with BuddyPress as each profile would require it's own sub site, rather the profile would also be domain.com/profile rather than profile.domain.com

    I'd recommend going with multisite and then somehow use BuddyPress on the main site and then a vcard based theme on sub sites, so the users create a sub site profile.

    Thanks!

    Kind Regards
    Jack.
