Hello

I am looking to develop a social networking site for one of my clients and looking for an appropriate framework on ASP.net ( not PHP ), which would be both stable , cheap ( if not free ) as well having good functionality.

I have looked at a few options on DNN such as

smart thinker
Active Social

I also had a look at community server but I think it would be a costly affair

Another question for Active Social users would be is it is opensource and to what extent I can customize it

thanks

The source code is here:

Also take a look at this one:

Thanks disrupt

I was checking if the source code for Active Social is available.

Also Monox doesnt seem to be free...and the source code version is expensive...I am looking for a Social networking tool...which provide us source code...which we can build upon
