What’s the difference between
Tribe and Social Engine?

Social Engine is one of the earliest social network builders that has been around for a decade now and offers services via both hosted and self-hosted solutions.

Read on to explore why Tribe is the leading alternative to Social Engine and a powerful platform to build thriving social networks.

Community platform

Tribe’s community platform is highly modular and allows you to build a customized community website by selecting and showcasing different elements of your community exactly the way you need.

Pluggable widgets

Widgets allow you to deliver highly immersive social experience by seamlessly integrating components of the community inside your product or website. This helps you add community touchpoints across the buyer journey.

Built-in integrations

Tribe offers out-of-the-box integration with 20+ apps ranging from messaging and marketing to analytics and support apps. Moreover, Zapier integration allows you to automate workflows by connecting with thousands of popular third-party SaaS apps.


The subscription fee for communities powered by Social Engine starts from $9 per month. Tribe’s entry-level paid plan ($49/month) delivers all of the essential tools for building niche social networks under your custom domain with 10,000 members.

Moderation capability

Tribe helps you efficiently moderate with sophisticated automation tools (e.g., keyword blacklisting and minimum reputation requirements). Your members are also empowered to report any content and member.

Reporting and analytics

Tribe offers comprehensive in-built analytics. Also, all the community activities can be sent to external analytics tools such as Google Analytics and Amplitude for granular reporting of key metrics.

Valuable networks

Tribe provides a safe and secure online space for the members to forge strong connections by following each other and adding value via different types of connections.

Knowledge discovery

With Tribe, you can organize the user-generated content exactly as per your preference and allow contextual discovery of the same (e.g., asking questions and searching) in a seamless manner.

Tribe helped us build a unified community with continuous experience for learners and create a robust communication channel.
