Social Network for WordPress will keep the users on your website by entertaining them with social networking functionality (friends, likes, activity,
Well, your users get plenty of new functionality, and you (as website owner) get lots of content and page views.
There are at least two differences:
The GRA4 Server provides the Social Networking functionality, and the WordPress-powered website, joined to the GRA4 network ("GRA4 Client"), channels the data between the visitors and GRA4 Server. Visitors of the GRA4 Client remain anonymous for the GRA4 server.
It's important, so, one more time: GRA4 Server does not collect any personal data of the users of your website, for the GRA4 Server your user is are just something like "website#123_user#345".
Sounds cool, huh? =) Well, we like this patented technology too.
No codes is executed on your website besides the ones provided by the Plugin. From gra4.com you are getting not the code, but the data your website relays to the visitor's browser. To make sure look through the Plugin code.
See the GRA4 Webmasters group ( http://gra4.com/groups/profile/94/gra4-webmasters ) - it will provide you with the links. Although you pretty much all set - your users already have full-blown social networking functionality.
Use the admin interface (look for "GRA4 Settings" in the left menu) to adjust the social content position. See Video Tutorial at the http://gra4.com/wiki/GRA4_for_WordPress_Settings for details. If you need deeper customization, edit style files custom.css in your wp-content/plugins/gra4/css/ directory. The width of the content is about 1000px, so we recommend to switch off sidebars for the GRA4 page if the theme offers such option.
We already support 25 languages, and when you read it, we probably already have more. We also constantly work on the improvement of the existing translations. However, the admin interface for now available only in English.
