FUCK FACEBOOK - only reason it took off is because the design was stupid simple and stupid people who knew nothing about computers could easily use it on the first try. there was no complex learning curve. like you would have found on myspace. "with myspace" you had to spend time and be user savey to figure out how to add the fancey html codes ect. we have to focus on designing a system that looks smart and sexy think "Apple Products" but dumb stupid easy to operate. most dolphin see more sites are in the opposite direction way to many mods and features. this stuff excites tech savey people like me and you but scares the hell out of everyday surfers. the truth is we are some of the smartest people online but if we make our user base face reality on how dumb they are in logic they will not user your site and go use a site thats easyier. at this point you dont want to be the next face book. you want to fill a niche. a specialty market and then spread from there and grow. my sites are not the largest 10,000 Plus Members but i get stead new signups every day like clock work. i have boycotted all facebook plugin for mysite, i dont want anything to do with them. facebook users are cheap and provide very little profit. not the type of user im looking for... im looking for members who have a problem and need a solution. "my social networks are the solution" follow that rule you will find users and the money! build a site that appeals to women and the men will follow. most of face books growth was powered by women needs to socialize and connect, same for plentyoffish and the new gold rush on groupon sharing sites. all fueled by women.

Although you make it sound really harsh, I think you're spot on. We need to figure out how to make Dolphin dead-simple for users. Simpler than Facebook even. That's the new "gold" of web development.
Below is the legacy version of the Boonex site, maintained for Dolphin.Pro 7.x support.
The new Dolphin solution is powered by UNA Community Management System.
