Social Stream is a solid framework for building any type of contact and content-oriented social network. It is divided into components that provides developers with flexibility to use what they need:
- Base, basic functionalities of contacts, streams and walls, along with users, group, post and comments.
- Documents, support for activities on files: pictures, audio and video with a HTML5 player.
- Events, sheduled events with calendar.
- Linkser, advanced management of links to other webpages.
- Presence, XMPP based chat support.
- Ostatus, support for social network federation.
The framework has proven flexible enough to build the Virtual Science Hub, an excursion oriented social network for teachers discovering science.
