I'm owner/moderator of a social networking site which was serviced by Yahoo. In the beginning, I had been able to use many of the features Yahoo had on the site as effective informational tools for my group members as well as visitors. With time (and change) Yahoo made them ineffective and useless. I've recently opened an InBox.com account for my personal use and was wondering..is there a way to open a seperate account (through InBox.com) and modify it to function as a page similiar to a Yahoo social media site. Any input, help, critique, suggestions, etc on this topic would be greatly appreciated as I'm not as well versed in web design, page layout, command functions as I should be in order to master such an undertaking..I just want to give my group a safe, secure, functional product.

What sort of information and tools do you want/need? There really isn't a way to modify someone else's website, so I can't see that option being available to you.

It makes sense that another's website could not be used..would help greatly to help assure the security of the personal information. What I could use (as a next best alternate) is a recommendation about which sites (or hosts) would provide the most security measures for my group members.

Would something like Google Groups be sufficient? Again, I am not sure of your needs, so I can't be more helpful than that.

Thank's for the suggestion. I'm on several Google groups (communities) and with what I've seen of people taking things (pictures, articles, links) from one community to another, Google groups is not an option..I want more security for them than that.

Mind giving us more details? What security features are you wanting?

There are 10 types of people in the world, those that can read binary, and those who can't.
