About the Website and the Portal
What sets SPEED Portal apart from the rest is its powerful Social Stream. Most stream items are highly interactive, where you may "like" or leave a comment on the content.
Like and comment on any stream item and a notification will be sent to original poster and everyone who has liked or left a comment on the post.
Filter the stream to view all activities either by the site members or just your friends.
Auto-update features notify the user when there is a new update in real-time.
The powerful stream also works within each group and events.
User Profile Management
A social networking site has to offer unique features to its members that will keep them coming back. SPEED Portal is easy to customize and you can bring unique features and a social environment to your site members.
Collect relevant data from your users, such as High School and Hometown from a basic profile, or you can ask users something more relevant to your site.
Advanced member-search feature. You can then let your members find each other based on various criteria.
The fun-to-use Photo Gallery will be the heart of your community.
Upload dozens of pictures at a time. Just drag and drop them to the upload screen and our HTML5-powered uploader will automatically queue the photos.
SPEED Portal comes with an amazing photo gallery. Each album is neatly displayed, coupled with interactive features such as a comment and like system, photo tagging, and content discovery modules.
Easily manage your events with SPEED Portal's Event Manager. Set an event anywhere in the world and it'll display in Google Maps. Create your events with SPEED Portal so that your members are more engaged with each other. Nothing beats meeting your members face-to-face and having fun doing it!
Manage your members, set limits on the numbers of invitations, or even send out invitations so that they can RSVP to your event
Control attendance via the private event feature or even limit the number of available seats.
Sometimes it's more engaging to communicate in a smaller circle. SPEED Portal Groups allow your community to interact on a more personal level. Every group will have its own photos, videos, and event sections. Plus, there are discussion board and file-sharing features for your community.
Set your group as public if you need to attract a crowd.
Or make your group private. Private groups require users to receive invitations for them to join and view its content.
Creating social networking sites with SPEED Portal has never been easier. SPEED Portal is extensible via its API which gives developers the ability to extend the functionality of SPEED Portal. Choose from among almost two hundred plugins for SPEED Portal to tweak your community to your liking.
Sitting atop Joomla, you can create a community with thousands of Joomla extensions for further customization.

We take user privacy seriously and have built a robust privacy control system within SPEED Portal.
Members can limit their content access either to public, site members, or friends only.

Having your own social network doesn't mean that you have to compete with the big boys such as Facebook. Instead, why not connect your community site with Facebook to get additional features? With Facebook Connect, a community member may login with the member's Facebook account, share status updates, invite Facebook friends, and publish activities to Facebook.
Increase signup rate with Facebook Connect.
Allow members to use existing avatars.
Facebook Connect users may publish their status update back to Facebook.
