Social Community

An online social community provides a platform for people across the world to connect and interact with each other. Social communities can range from niche communities pertaining to specific areas of interest such as pet or music lovers or can be general communities such as Facebook.

Typically, social networking sites allow members to create profiles and search for other like-minded people. Discussion forums, blogs, chat, internal messaging system etc are some of the means by which people can communicate in a social networking website.

Online social networks also provide businesses with a new and innovative means to build customer relationships and advertise their services. Businesses can setup profiles on social networking sites to communicate with existing and potential customers.

Solutions Developed

Icreon has experience in developing numerous social networking sites on the open source platform. A look at some of the social networking websites that we have developed:


We enagaed with Icreon in the summer of 2009 to build a new aspect for our Saddlery company, the brief was to come up with a suitable adaptable ecommerce solution and also a community site for members. We had unfourtnately engaged a cheap off the shelf solution prior to talking with Icreon. After quickly working out that the off the shelf solution would not work, Our in house designers and Icreon set to work to remake the project. In my opinion I have never been more impressed by a company.
