Are there any products that mimic the social networking sites such as Facebook, MySpace and Twitter that are 'private' versions - e.g. the kind that an organization could setup and administer internally.  They might use Internet connectivity but basically they would be only for communications between individuals in a corporation or selected third parties? Ditto  for internal/'private/secure' wiki and blog management.  I know there are products such as Sharepoint but I'm looking for something with the same feel as Facebook and the others I mentioned.

Hi lineonecorp,

You generally will need to set up an intranet and once you do that, there are a whole host of applications out there that mimic stuff.  You just need to install it on the intranet server so it is not visible to the outside world.

Yes, I understood it had to be on a secured Intranet.  What I was looking for was some feedback on  the 'lookalikes'.  Which ones have you worked with? I'm specifically interested in lookalikes similar to the brand names I mentioned - Facebook, MySpace, Twitter and Wiki.

Sorry, misunderstood the issue.

Wiki = MediaWiki
Social Networking = Elgg
Twitter = Might be harder to come by.  Try Yonky
