BuddyPress

In a TechCrunch video interview posted today of Matt Mullenweg (WordPress cofounding developer), Matt noted that BuddyPress is going to be launched ‘relatively shortly’.

BuddyPress will allow the creation of a Social Network environment around a multi-user installation of WordPress, which will offer a great way to create small-scale networks around niche areas of interest.

Matt calls it “Facebook-in-a-box”.
