Hi,

I'm looking for a social networking software that will do the following:
- Let People create groups: where they can add friends or others can join.
- Let people create their profiles (with mobile number, email and other basic info)
- Members can SMS a group by paying an amount of money = SMS price * number of group members. Then SMS will be sent to all group members.
- As a complementary an email to the group members will be sent out.

majdolyan,

I don't know of social networking software that will do that off the shelf. However, the best program that I know of now, that might provide that kind of capability, is Social Engine (http://www.socialengine.net/). They DON'T have either SMS or ability to pay to access special features, but Social Engine Mods makes a module which allows for members to pay for a specific feature (http://www.socialenginemods.net/social-engine/plugins/4/subscriber-membership-subscription-manager), and I suspect that either Social Engine or Social Engine Mods would create the SMS part for a fee - both of them offer customization for customer needs.

Cheers,
LHerrou

I'm looking for business use.
I want to host a software in my site, and let people join and use.
OneConnnect is somehow an example to what I want to implement for my users.

Thanks

Thanks this was useful, can you suggest one that is tailored for social networking and relatives or at least can be tailored to genealogy software with all features I listed above.
