Additional Information

We have developed a system based upon existing social networking software (phpbb). This has provided a stable and secure base for the software, which we offer as an open-source download from our site. We have completed many additions to the software recently including video posting and other multimedia. Our focus has been on integrating existing online social networking techniques into community currency systems, and providing software for others to use to reduce cost/increase convenience.
