SocialEngine is a software suite that allows creation of customizable online communities. It is sold in two flavours: as standalone software package called SocialEngine PHP, and as software as a service under the name SocialEngine Cloud.
SocialEngine PHP is a PHP-based white-label social networking service platform, that provides features similar to a social network on a user's website. Main features include administration of small-to-mid scale social networks, some customization abilities, unencrypted code, multilingual capability, and modular plugin/widget compatibility. There is a range of templates and add-ons available to extend the basic features already included in the SocialEngine core.
SocialEngine Cloud is a SaaS, hosted version that facilitates interest graphs or communities of people with similar interests. The new cloud-based service lets anyone create a community website, including discussion communities similar to the microsharing style of Reddit, the photo curation style of Pinterest or activity stream style of Facebook depending on the theme.
Webligo Developments, LLC offers a variety of plugins to extend the functionality of SocialEngine into blog hosting, photo album hosting, groups, music sharing and hosting, video sharing and hosting, chat and instant messaging services, event planning, online polls, and forums.
SocialEngine installations are unbranded by default. Webligo does not supply templates to alter the appearance of an installation, but these templates are available through third-party vendors.
