WordPress for a social networking/ community site?

Hi everyone,

I’ve been pondering on whether or not to use BuddyBoss to create a social networking/ community site for a niche.

Although their platform seems like a great match for what I’m trying to achieve, I just worry about whether WordPress can handle it.

I would be aiming to accumulate 5-10,000 members over time.

Does anyone know if this is doable for WordPress? What sort of hosting would I need to keep the site speed under 1 second?

Thanks for any help.

  1. It’s not the best way but it’s doable, personally I would custom develop it and if you want 10k users online it’s going to cost about $1k-$2k a month
