Active Social Webinars by Active Modules

Active Modules If you follow anything that I do, then you might have picked up on the fact that I am a big fan of Active SocialActive Social is a complete social networking solution for DotNetNuke®.  Out all of the available solutions for DNN that I could demo, this was the only one that just worked, with minimal set-up and had the best usability.  Needless to say, I am using this solution on a handful of sites, from a mission-critical travel website, to a simple family website.  It has worked great!*

* To be fair, I have of course had difficulties like we do with nearly any software product. But they weren’t anything that didn’t get resolved appropriately and timely.

One of the notable things about this solution is that it has a template and theme system built into it, that allows you to extend the look and functionality of the existing module.  In theory, you could completely change it to the point that you would recognize it being Active Social.  For example, if you’re building a book review network website, you could add a “view” to the implementation to support the addition and management of reviews from people within the social network.

As great as those features are, they are not for the faint of heart.  Not everyone will be able to just build a theme or view.  Luckily, Active Modules as come to the rescue!  They are offering two different webcasts to help get you started with Active Social.  If you are interested in any level of social activity on your website or a client’s website, then I suggest you check it out.  And get this… They’re FREE!  {happy dance}
