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
