Drupal and Social Networking

Welcome to Social Networking with Drupal 6! During the course of this book, we are going to learn how to use Drupal 6, a content management system, to create a social networking web site. We will install and configure Drupal, take a look at its features and see how it works. By using a combination of existing features, modules, and some simple custom development, we will enable user interaction, user contributions, and communication with our users.

In this chapter, you will learn:

• What social networking is

• About social networking concepts

• What a content management system is

• Why Drupal is an excellent platform for social networking

• How to install and configure Drupal

We will also discuss the social networking web site—which we will create during the course of this book—DinoSpace! a social network for keepers of pet dinosaurs.
