What it is.
PeepSo is a super-light, free, social network plugin for WordPress that allows you to quickly and effortlessly add a social network or an online community, similar to Facebook right inside your WordPress site.
What sets PeepSo apart from other social networking solutions is its light weight and stellar design. PeepSo works right out of the box and within seconds, you can start a social network, right inside your WordPress site. There’s no need to hire a developer. It simply works.peepso.com
This statement straight from the PeepSo website is entirely true. In our testing we found the interface to be intentionally familiar. Those of you who have used Facebook even one time will recognize the layout and features.
Installing the free version of the PeepSo plugin on your site would provide the ability to create and style interactive community spaces with a ton of social media-like activities including:
- activity timeline,
- rich user profiles, and
- in-site notifications
If all of that is free, why should I pay?
You definitely will want some if not all of the core plugin extensions which add the following key features for $29 per add-on. Buying all of them is $174.
- Rich media posting (photo, audio
- User connections/friends,
- Groups, and
- Chat messaging for both individuals and groups
And that’s not all…
Just like any up and coming social network, altruism is great, but
PeepSo’s business model is such that you can add any of their features ala carte, but it is more beneficial to get a bundle. At the time of this writing, their Ultimate Bundle is $249 and would save you about $500 over buying each extension individually.
Who’s it for?
Rich community features and relatively cheap pricing mean that PeepSo doesn’t incur a large barrier to entry for clubs and groups up to corporations with larger infrastructure.
Organizations will find “Extras” such as the User Limits and Word Filter extensions invaluable for setting granular user permission
