We would like to find a canned program that allows us to host a social
network on our website. I am not interested in a list of all the

install on my own server that would allow people to meet, match
interests, share information, plan meeting and so on.
There is no answer at this time.

The following answer was rejected by the asker (they received a refund for the question).
