Building your own facebook style/social media site
what are the options, who are the major players?

It seems to me that the next step in social media marketing for many companies is to try and set up their own social media site. I know there are platforms out there that facilitate this and some major players such as Ning that many are using already.

But what are the options available, whether its a hosted or managed solution, completely out of the box, or build your own completely bespoke network ?

Who are the major players, what's available, and what have you tried if any?

I'd say socialengine is cool but I really do love Ning and there are many social media scripts out there for creating your own online community -- Google it and you'll see all of the options. There's one script I've used in the past which is the greatest and I can't remember it at this moment. I apologize

Drupal is very powerful and would work well. Though its not the easiest program to use.
