Game changer? BuddyPress 1.7
Consumed => “Boone Gorges: BuddyPress 1.7 Preview” on YouTube.
What I find most interesting is the hybrid / grey area between WordPress multisite and BuddyPress. Given the right niche a sustainable (and profitable) business model looks to be within reach. For example, my Killington Year Round (side-project) looks to be a perfect candidate for WP MS+BP. Toss on some Bootstrap and suddenly there’s fireworks! We’ll see ;)
Let’s be sensible, the traditional large screen website is not as entertaining (read: effective) as it used to be. People don’t want to watch the party, they want to be part of it too. And even those who do not want to engage head on still enjoy watching those who do.
Your brand is quickly becoming the community you curate.
