I am not referring to Facebook, BUT I am referring to any social network that I can use to offer some features that Facebook also offers. In other words, I want to take away animal welfare advocates from Facebook and make them start posting and sharing in MY social network. The reason for this is that Facebook's attitude has become absolutely horrible, acting as if they control everyone's life. They have deleted quite a number of my groups that have taken years for me to build a following for, with members numbering in the thousands, and I am so sick and tired of working so hard to build groups just for damned facebook to delete the groups just because a Facebook user did not like a post or posts by a member or by multiple members, and they never provide a specific reason except to state "in violation of our community standards". I am so utterly sick and tired of them, and even our very own President Duterte here in the Philppines just issued a stern warning to Facebook just today, after Facebook deleted several groups associated with the Philippine Military and the Philippine National Police. So I posted that President Duterte had warned Facebook, and of course Facebook deleted that specific post of mine immediately.
Millions are disgusted and sick and tired of facebook, but obviously they have not found a better alternative.
this is why I am asking if anyone has integrated his phpBB board with a (already existing) social network, so that it does not have to be created from scratch. There are social networks aplenty, but most of them are built on wordpress, and the ones built on php are terribly ugly-looking, like WoWonder, or Sngine, the 2 most popular on Theme Forest, and I bought licenses for both of them just to be terribly disappointed with their front end appearance. There are many ready and beautiful html templates offered in Theme Forest, such as Socialite, Pitnik (my favorite so far), Vikinger, etc., but they are not yet full applications, and still need a front end and back end developer to customize them into full blown applications. And this is also why I asked if anyone has been able to integrate his phpBB board with a Wordpress-based social network, which is what I am considering now since I either am not happy with what is out there for a low price, or the ones that look really good are too expensive for me to try out and to give up in case I am not happy with them. Such a pity that there is no php-based social network that can compete with Facebook when, if you really think about it, should be quite easy.
