Just imagine what you would do if you could open your own social networking site and all your near and dear friends into it. You could implement your own ideas and design your profile in the most unique way. This is possible through the Elgg social networking platform. Elgg was first introduced to the internet industry by two people-David Tosh and Ben Werdmuller in the year 2004. From then till now, the platform has helped many internet users to socialize with the outside world through their own networking ideas. The idea became so popular in the web industry that the developers also won award in the year 2008 under the category “Best networking platform”.

Through Elgg service providers you can administer your own social networking site and customize it according to your ideas. There are many Elgg plugins and widgets with which you can create unique profiles. If you find it difficult to create such an account, but have the basic idea, you can hire Elgg developers who can do the work for you in no time. The customization part inside the platform is very simple and can be done with just a few clicks. You can bring in your own privacy settings and avoid other people from seeing your private photos, and updates. You can add pop-out notifications from which you can get the latest updates on your friends’ statuses and also latest comments on your personal status and photos. Introducing the chat feature is another great feature that can be added to your site.

Any kind of customization is possible with this platform. You can easily start communities, blogs and also company profiles with this platform. In order to monetize your site, you will have to bring in heavy traffic. By marketing the site properly you can succeed in making money as well. You can send messages and SMS’s to your friends’ personal contacts to let them know about your new site. Once they come to know that your site is unique, they will automatically login and register their profile. They will start talking about it to other friends and thus it becomes a chain process. All you have to do is maintain  the site with a better server as the traffic increases. Also bring in additional changes in different settings according to the users feedbacks.

There are also basic Elgg templates which will give you a better idea on how to bring modifications to the site. All you have to do is consult a hosting company, buy your own server space, contact Elgg service providers, buy your own platform, develop your idea, and release it to the web industry. If you have a very neat networking site with high end features like video chatting and group discussion communities, you can surely make a huge list of friends and increase traffic to such an extent that you can bring in advertisements as well. You are only a few clicks away from making this dream come true.
