EasySocial is brought to you by the same creators of EasyBlog, EasyDiscuss and Komento.
JomSocial looks great out of the box, has a very mature ‘ecosystem’ around 3rd party products, but I was ‘spooked’ when they closed their forum some time back. It seemed like they were saying ‘just buy the subscription, but please leave us in peace’. Suicidal business move IMHO. They have since been taken over and the forum reinstated, so time will tell how things go there.
What of the new kid on the block, EasySocial?
I can sum EasySocial up in one sentence… If all of the best bits of Community Builder and JomSocial had a baby, that baby would be EasySocial!
EasySocial is young, energetic, and eager to learn and please. EasySocial makes me enjoy developing websites. It is simply a joy to work with. I have four websites planned for this year and EasySocial is going to be the backbone of all of them.
As for Mark and the rest of the team at Stackideas. The work ethic of these guys is insane! I don’t honestly know when they sleep. I’ve been in touch with Mark about various things, including improvements and suggestions over the last week or two and I receive helpful and informative replies from him at all hours of the day and night. As if that wasn’t enough, this is on top of him and his colleagues being in the middle of getting the eagerly anticipated 1.2 version of EasySocial ready for release.
Every post on their forum gets answered, and gets answered quickly, politely (non of this condescending, curt and intimidating nonsense seen elsewhere) and is signed of with a smile :-)
As for the 1.2 release of EasySocial, it is a HUGE update. I think Mark said on the forum that there have been something like 600 changes and new features! You know I said they didn’t sleep? Well, in the last three weeks, they have released four betas and one release candidate of EasySocial 1.2. The EasySocial community is very active and have supported the beta programme, reporting on bugs and feature suggestions etc. The good thing is that these guys listen. They fixed something like 300 beta issues in about 1-2 weeks.
Other Joomla developers, are you listening?
Sometimes I have to remind myself that EasySocial is just a few months old. You forget and think that you are working with a very mature product. That is the biggest compliment I can give these guys. Yes there are some things missing, but 1.2 addresses the most important ones, such as groups and I expect they will release a stable version in the next few weeks. They publish a road map here (google it), so you always know exactly which features are coming and when.
Development of EasySocial is progressing at an astonishingly rapid pace, there are lots of new features on the horizon. The ones I personally can’t wait for are Events, Paid Subscriptions and a built-in invite system, all due in the next 2-3 months! With events, I even made some suggestions about the ability to link events to Joomla articles via a plug-in and/or module and Mark took the time to understand exactly how I thought it could work and I’m sure we will see that excellent feature.
3rt party support is gathering pace, with Jreviews (my Joint favourite Joomla developer), SourceCoast, Simbunch, TechJoomla and many, many others having already integrated their own products with EasySocial. On top of having integrated some of their existing products, the latter are also jointly developing a mobile app for EasySocial, with Stackideas providing the UI design expertise.
Can it get any better?
StackIdeas as company - Excellent support, and on top of that - they do listen what users saying. This is top-important to me as a user and co-worker.
EasySocial as a product - I'm reading a lot of strings before product arrive in public, so I see how EasySocial is evolving and developing. Next release will contain tons of improvements in UI, new functions and features which are far beyond of what we know from other social extensions for Joomla. I must admit the attention developer pays to details. You can see it everywhere: in language files and in code itself.
If you are a Joomla website developer considering community driven website to build - take EasySocial. It's blazing fast and affordable. I personally recommend this extension.
StackIdeas are absolutely fantastic, in their products and their support.
I've used EasyBlog for nearly 2 years, and although it tied in with JomSocial, my site just didn't look right, and JomSocial was laggy and slow.
When they guys at StackIdeas released EasySocial, I hanged back for a while to see how the product was received. It was soon apparent that people were raving about it, and I knew the support from the guys at StackIdeas would be second to none. So, when I installed it, and it being a relatively new product, I was blown away by it's features.
Sure, like any new product, you end up tripping over yourself configuring, but the guys at StackIdeas are superb! They help, they inform and they listen. I've never had to wait more than 6 hours for an answer to a question. Considering the time difference between the UK and where they are based, this is outstanding. I've had replied from Mark Lee at 2.30am his time in the morning either advising, or him jumping into the backend of the site to fix a problem.
If you're looking to add a social networking aspect to your site, and want to integrate it with an excellent blogging platform (EasyBlog) and discussion forum (EasyDiscuss), then look no further. I woudldn't hesitate recommending this product to anyone.
Great job guys!
I have worked in web development and programming for nearly ten years and I have never come across a company whose support team could even come close to that of Stack Ideas. Not only do they answer questions in the forum in an extremely quick fashion, but they make their answers easy to understand. In addition they have to be one of the friendliest support teams I've ever communicated with.
Thank you Stack Ideas team for making this most recent project such a pleasure to work on and such a success!
I started working on my dream project finally after two years and was just waiting for kind of product like EasySocial.
What i like the most is thier transparent efforts on the roadmap. We know what we can expect in future releases.
Very Easy to work with. Thanks Mark & his team.
I am StackIdeas Bundle Owner :D
I recommend this product blindly, don't look further!
As an administrator, I'm enjoying the simplicity of updating as and when necessary, and the support from the Stack Ideas team. I really can't speak highly enough of the software and the support. FIRST CLASS.
The idea beyond EasySocial is simple, yet remarkably useful. The wide variety of features & apps make it promising, and create a complex, but stunning solution for your website.
Every single detail is well-thought, and works out of the box. The software they offer is incredibly fast, and has such functions what others cannot even imagine in their sleep. What is more fantastic: EasySocial's ability is constantly growing, so if you don't choose them, you are living in fool's paradise. They also created a roadmap for us, in order to follow the latest projects they are working on, so everybody knows what to expect next.
The team & support are more than great and dynamic. You don't know the lengths they would go to for taking care of their customers. I mean it, hats off to them! Some of the best things about their care are: they always work on new projects, they work fast so you don't have to wait for couple of months for every new release, their assistance is fast, satisfying, and what they are trying to do is providing their A-game all the time. They are willing to do listen to the company’s clientele, and consider their needs. If you are uncertain or you need help, or just have an idea or question, there's no better way than turning to these excellent people who will be there and happily help you. They are hard-working and have a community-centered approach as well. To sum up my experiences, this assiduity is perfectly enough for me to trust them. Keep up that good work guys!!!
I really took satisfaction in their service and support, so I'm blissful to give them my highest recommendation.
No need to say much about Easysocial , but just one word : paradise !
Since a large Social , comes great opportunity!
Stackideas has reached its goal .
We will never stop thank you enough . Look no further. The future is here ! One day , if I can, I'm going to find these guys in person.
An Italian client happy :)
I am so excited to honor this guys and dolls, who always are prepared to give us time to resolve problems accuratly and quick, even in the weekend. But most of all i want everybody encourage to choose this social scripts, because they give you real value for money, i have tested a lot of scrips joomla and others, but if you want to have your site set up in a short time and have a stunning hot layout, this is the place where you have to be, really i configured the scripts in a day. Thank you social player, it can be easy, why being difficult then?
Thanks for using EasySocial and the continuous support for all our extensions! We will continue this legacy :)
Thank you for the kind compliments and trusting us to help you build your awesome social network!
Thank you for the kind compliments and for the support all these years!
If you are a developer looking for a social network component, there is no need to look further. This component is just amazing and the support is top notch.
Thank you for the kind compliments David. We appreciate your feedback!
And I think this is what it's all about: EasySocial, as all the other StackIdeas's extensions are not just all but promises… They provide fully baked features when ready and amazing support to go with it.
EasySocial is still a baby, and yet it already walks and talks and before you get to see it, it will be a full grown-up ready to help you and to do an amazing work.
Of course, integration with others StackIdeas products is a big help to developp a consistent UX for your community.
I'd like to think of cons to balance my review… however, I can think of none.
Thank you for the kind compliments. We appreciate your feedback!
