If you want FACEBOOK like functionality for your buddypress installation where Homepage for Vistiors is different than Logged in users, you should try this plugin. This plugin performs following tasks:
** when user log into your website, user is redirected to his/her profile.
** when user try to move to homepage, user is redirected to his/her profile.
** when user logs out of your website, user is redirected to homepage of the website.
because once users are logged in, there is no need to appeal them to register,so they shouldn’t be sent their again.
Now you can select the user role, who can view the homepage. Roles which can be selected;
None:- Nobody is allowed to view homepage
Administrators:- Only users with the role ‘administrator’ can view the homepage
Editors:- Only users with the role ‘editor’ can view the homepage
Authors:- Only users with the role ‘author’ can view the homepage
Contributors:- Only users with the role ‘contributor’ can view the homepage
Subscribers:- Only users with the role ‘subscriber’ can view the homepage

How this plugin can be helpful?
Ans: It is suggested that you should have a static HOMEPAGE for your visitors which is having register link. Now once, your user has logged into buddypress, he will be redirected to his/her profile. So, you dont need seperate plugin which redirects the user to profile on logging in. Secondly everytime user clicks on homepage links or logo of your website, he will be redirected to his/her profile which makes easy accessiblity of own profile to the user and more over there is no need to show register link to logged in user.
Any conflicts with this plugin ?
Ans: It may have conflicts with the plugins who offer redirections for buddypress plugin
