Buddypress is a popular WordPress plugin that allows you to turn your boring WordPress blog into a cool social network but for some of us, Just commenting isn’t enough so I decided to write an article showing you How to add some additional features to your existing social network that you normally don’t get with the Buddypress plugin. Please note the following points before going through this post to avoid misunderstanding.
1. This is not a top list because each plugin has a different role to play from the other ones so keep that in mind and read this post.
2. The small description that is given below each plugin are taken from the official plugin page. This is because I wanted to show the original description written by the author instead of my comments, Also their description will explain the plugin clearer than what I can do.
