Read more about Open Social, the team and the process in our case study!

Open Social is here!!

Open Social is a distribution for building social communities and intranets inspired on our award winning social community platform. This distribution is the successor of Commons for Drupal 8. Open Social is a redesign and rewrite of this concept.

We are developing the project with 8FTE on Github. Check out our alpha release, we'd love to hear your feedback! You can also sign-up to our newsletter or follow @OpenSocialHQ on Twitter to be kept informed on updates.

Help wanted!

Do you want to join us in this effort? We are welcoming your feedback and (development) time. Please contact taco@getopensocial.com for any other questions.

The Open Social Manifesto

"Without Drupal distributions, we won't be able to successfully compete with commercial vendors. Drupal distributions have great potential, but we have to do them right, and we have to figure out how to make them sustainable." - Dries

We want to share our guide in creating the best open-source social platform in the world.

The Open Social Manifesto
Open Social empowers people to effectively collaborate and organize. Replacing traditional intranets, it fuels efficiency and creativity. It supports organisations to innovate bottom-up instead of top-down.

The Open Social distribution exists to lay a flexible groundwork to meet these goals. In order to do so the Open Social distribution must have:

  • World-class ease of use (on all devices)
  • Blazing fast (perceived) speed
  • Flexible customization and configuration (branding, integrations etc.)

We welcome and invite the (Drupal) open-source community to give feedback on the Social Manifesto.
