Hello community!

We have a big social network running at ning.com, over 7000 members, 30000 photos…
Since we would like to support advanced collaboration features and more extensibility à la Webscript etc I evaluate is possiblity of moving the whole thing to Alfresco.

* Basic requirements are common social network features: Browsing/Searching Photos/Videos/Members, Discussions, Blogging.
* One of our requirements is advanced authorization, supporting e.g. a group moderator role for a specific "discussion group".
* We need a simple interface for standard users, who just want to view photos, discuss, blog and send messages, just like in facebook.
* We need to import all the data into Alfresco: Photos, Videos, Discussions, Messages, Blogs, Comments, Groups

How would the roadmap look like to build such a network with Alfresco?
Would we use Webscripts to build a simple user interface?

Thanks!

André
