Wall.fm is an online service for people to build and host social networking services, powered by Oxwall software. Wall.fm allows users over 18 years old to register a free account and create custom social networking websites. The site creation process does not involve any coding, and consists of only two steps. The distinctive Wall.fm features are user roles (member access permissions), customizable themes, activity newsfeed, website/profile/content privacy, monetization pack. One of its main competitive advantages is that the service is built on an open source platform, which means a certain degree of freedom for site owners. Wall.fm offers three plans: Starter, Pro and Ultimate. Plans offer different feature sets, disk space and bandwidth, individual support and vendor's branding removal. Every plan offers free trial.
As of January 2013, Wall.fm only offers free site registration by invites.
Wall.fm provides all the basic functionality required to build a social website: user roles, photo/video sharing, chat, blogs, forum, groups, events, activity stream. It supports site/profile/content privacy, and allows for a certain degree of site pages customization by users and administrator, as well as general design alteration via CSS styles. Wall.fm also has site monetization features available with Pro and Ultimate plans: user credits, membership levels, and payment providers. Because features are developed as plugin extensions, they can be easily enabled/disabled via the admin dashboard.
