Acts as Group


The Acts as Group plugin provides a means for communication on multi-user blogs. You can create user groups for any purpose. It also allows you to communicate with other users through a Twitter-like interface on the WordPress Administration Panel.

Who should use the Acts as Group plugin?

Acts as Group is designed to help people who participate in multi-user blogging or group blogging. If you are seeking a simple way to communicate among members and don’t want an overly complicated solution, Acts as Group is your best choice.

Is this a Twitter client? Does it require a Twitter account to use?

No. Acts as Group is not a Twitter client and you don’t need a Twitter account to use it. Only a user account on the WordPress blog is needed.

Who can see the group messages?
