Member profiles are critical for storing the user’s data, displaying the activities inside the social network, content contribution, and make the user discoverable for networking.

Activity feed

Activity feed is important to keep the members informed about what’s happening inside the site. Members can interact with the content (comments, upvotes, follow, etc.) based on interest.

Groups help you categorize content and foster connection between members with a shared passion. Hence, groups acts as one of the key channels for new member discovery.
