In the red corner we have the long-established BuddyPress plugin…and in the blue corner is the newcomer to the field, PeepSo.
Nah, we’re just kidding. One of the great things about WordPress is that new plugins and themes are released every single day and would-be competitors get to exist harmoniously side by side. It might be because the WordPress community is so diverse and far-reaching, but a little friendly competition is always a good thing.
So, what is PeepSo and why is it being cited as a rival to BuddyPress?
With the compelling tagline, ‘Your People. Your Community. Your Way.’ PeepSo is the latest social media plugin and has burst onto the scene in a blaze of glory, announcing their launch with a tweet that reads: ‘You’ve been asking for it. An alternative to BuddyPress. It’s here!’
Ah, so that’s probably where the ‘BuddyPress rival’ whispers came from.
Already available on WordPress.org, PeepSo has a few features in common with BuddyPress but also boasts a few differences – such as a number of PeepSo developed multimedia options including videos, moods, locations and photos.
