BuddyPress will transform an installation of WordPress MU into a social network platform.

BuddyPress is essentially a set of WordPress MU specific plugins. Each plugin component adds a distinct feature to BuddyPress and only handles functionality for that specific component (for example, private messaging). BuddyPress also has a core plugin that all other plugins require, it contains shared functions and performs the basic modifications to the WordPress MU interface.

Each BuddyPress component is independent. This means you can pick and choose which features you’d like.

It also means BuddyPress can be used in two different ways. You could use BuddyPress to create a complete social network from scratch, or you could use it to add desirable features to your existing blog network.
