Reply To: Am looking to create a social platform where people can post ‘stories’ and they can be commented on, with both the stories and comments able to be liked, and messaging between participants.  Stories can be sorted by various categories.  Keen for an out of the box solution with plugins, rather than trying to build it from scratch (at least for MVP).    Am wondering if the same functionality used for this manaaki site might work?  I heard Pat talking about it on the Spinoff interview.  Would really appreciate input from someone who understands what’s available/possible.  

Hi there,

I can’t help from the tech side, but interested to know from the social side what makes it different from the social platforms already available. Are you able to give an outline for the purpose of the product (is it a community group/forum/to sell a product) so we can help a little more?
