Thank you for this really well thought-out response.
I greatly appreciate how you’ve explored this idea and approached it from a position of website performance planning.
Having used BuddyPress to build for a client website vision in the past, we had an experience that this worked well for prototyping and validating a client idea.
After a couple month of development in BuddyPress, we ended up putting aside the entire Social Network functionality.
We learning a lot from this development time.
Thank you for explaining that BuddyPress is great for micro-communities. When looking for a more robust solution, this development experience in BuddyPress taught us to use existing frameworks like Facebook, where this particular client now has a 1000+ members in a Private Group.
Brajesh, Thank you for this thoughtful response.
Your experience and expertise in WordPress shines through.
If only we knew then… what we know now about how to really speed up a WordPress website.
We’ve had 400% to 800% increases on a lot of sites.
I’d really like to try our team at speeding up a BuddyPress website.
I think there is a lot more possible here using our current techniques.
