Currently Geeklog has no built in or plug-in support for social networking. By simple definition, social networking should allow a user to not only share content with users, but also be able to manage who those users are. Traditionally in Geeklog, the administrator of the system would share or deny content view rights based on Geeklog groups. The goal of the Socnet plugin is to allow end users to create and manage content and share that content to others in the Geeklog site via social networking groups.

The purpose of the Socnet plugin is not to be the content creation mechanism -- rather the Socnet plugin is there to provide the social networking group and security mechanisms to secure end user content, allowing the creator to publish or deny access to content as they see fit.
