Buddypress Widget Pack is a series of 4 widgets that you can add to your Buddypress-enabled sidebar. The four widgets are: 1)Popular Members widget 2)Newest Members Widget 3)Random Members Widget, and 4)Total Friends and Friend Connections Widget
Credit needs to be given to WPMU.org and Sarah Gooding for a majority of the code, as I just widget-ized it 😉
Please see the original tutorials by Sarah, here:
1. Popular Members widget
2. Newest Members widget
3. Random Members widget

The plugin is simple to install:
buddypress-widget-packdirectory to your
- Go to the plugin management page and enable the plugin
- Visit your Widgets page and drag where desired

- How might I use this?
Besides just dragging-and-dropping into your sidebar, I highly recommend using the Tabbed Widgets plugin to consolidate all of the Buddypress Widget Pack’s widgets into a consolidated interface. For example, create an accordion or tabbed widget that has the Newest Members Widget, Popular Members Widget, and Random Members Widget all in one.
