I am a member of a group on Facebook and we are looking to setup outside FB now, and so I have been looking at social media platforms but am struggling to make up my mind.
I was hoping that you guys might have an opinion on what is the best platform available that will be easy enough to setup and at a good price. Also, the security of the application is of particular importance to my community.
I have reviewed several social media platforms so far and have now narrowed the selection down to 3:
- Open Source Social Network
However, I have an issue with all three being that they all need
allow_url_fopen to be enabled, but I don't know why and have read that this can be a security issue.
I would appreciate anyone's opinions on these platforms and this particular setting or any alternative you can recommend.
