A Superb Social Network Experience
With a facebook like newsfeed, a modern look that meets today’s social media standards, and administrative control over your group, you will experience a superb social network. Advantages include the ability to white label your site, use a custom domain, and integrate your own logo to create the look and feel you desire.
Cheetah Fast Group Creation
Creating a group has never been faster or easier using the GROU.PS platform. Signup takes just a few minutes of your time, plus benefit from real-time previews when selecting your name, color scheme, category, and membership preference. No prior website design is needed to get your group started, however, if you find that you need a helping hand with further customization options please visit our Valet Build Services Page.
Invite Your Friends
GROU.PS makes it easy for you to instantly share your group with friends. Spread the word by using our built in Invite Tool to send out emails with one click. Simply insert email addresses or use our Gmail importer to notify your friends about your social network. Decide if you want to add a private message and then click submit. It’s that simple. You can also view invite status to see who accepted and joined.
Administer Your Network With Ease
Admin features are conveniently located in one place along the top bar. Visually keep track of member count, invitations, pageviews, moderations, and your current plan all in one place! Click on Tools for shortcuts to manage your apps and settings with quick access to FAQ’s and the Founders Network, a place to connect with other Admins. Two more quick and convenient links include Customize and “Need Help?”. As the Admin you’ll be able to manage members, setup roles & delegate, moderate content, and have the opportunity to monetize.
Add More Apps in a Snap
Apps represent the core building blocks of your Social Network. GROU.PS offers flexibility so you can pick and choose the Apps you need in a snap. It’s entirely your choice whether to use one or many. Standard Apps include Newsfeed, People, Blogs, Forum, Wiki, Events, Funds, Subgroups, Files, and Links. If that’s not enough we have Premium Apps as well including Photos, Videos, and Chat. And if that’s still not enough… you have the ability to integrate 3rd Party Apps.
