Premium BuddyPress Theme to Create your Social Networking Website

Social Networking Software Salutation by Themeforest

BuddyPress is growing increasingly popular as the platform to use if you want to create your own Social Networking website.  BuddyPress is a free open source project that was initially built to add social networking features to a Wordpress MU site.  It has morphed into what you see today, a full Wordpress BuddyPress developer community equipped with it’s own documentation, themes, and plugins.  With BuddyPress you can share status updates, show extended profiles, make friend connections, share images, send private messages, Wordpress blogging, create membership groups and more.   You do NOT need to know any PHP or have any programming knowledge to use BuddyPress.  With this powerful Social Networking Software, I’ve found a premium BuddyPress Theme to use it’s called ‘Salutation’.  See more features here.

Good day Elaine and thanks for the post.
What does buddypress/salutation gain from this? It sounds too juicy to be without strings worth knowing for a usually very expensive project.
