    Software for a social networking/community site

    I'm looking for some software to help build a social networking type site around a niche.

    My budget is in the mid $xxx, and the reason I'm looking into some premade software rather than hiring a programmer, is I think what I'm looking for is much too complex to be built on that budget.

    It should have some facebook style features as well as a good easy way for users to create their own personal home pages.

    I was looking into buildacommunity.com, but the web page building tool for user pages is horrible. I'm picturing something comparable to the 1and1.com website builder tool. Easy to use for a novice and quite flexible.

    Anyone have some suggestions?

    I think http://www.phpfox.com might be just what you are looking

    It's not quite as easy as 1&1's site builder, but, I think it's still easy enough.

    PHPFox is a good looking piece of software, however.. I would recommend a good google before you commit to deploying it..

    There have been some rather nasty comments about the software, the exploits and the support... This might have changed, and I do not have experience of the software first hand, only what I have read when I was researching software for a friends project
