Popsugar.com & TeamSugar

November 29, 2007 § Leave a comment

This is another not so new social networking site, but its idea is somehow refreshing and original.

  • There are a lot of fashion blogs/magazines…
  • There are a lot of gossip blogs…
  • There are a lot of social network sites…

But there’s not a whole lot of those three combined in 1 site. It definitely has high advertisement values.

Popsugar is built using Drupal, one of the oldest open source CMS. It has tons of modules. A social networking app can easily be built on top of Drupal.

Detailed conversation about Popsugar’s technical specs & Drupal tips is recorded here.

Granted that Drupal source code is somewhat funky, along with its hook architecture, but it is well known to be flexible and capable to withstand medium-sized traffic.
