BuddyPress Links is a drop-in link, image, video and other rich media sharing component for BuddyPress 2.0 and higher
4 Stars for effort, because BuddyPress plugins are not that easy to create with all the recent changes. The plugin has been recently updated by the author. I have tried to install again unsuccessfully, but this is not attributed to the plugin. I am in the process of removing some of the ruminant data in my database... One of the issues that I have ran into is when I am using a child theme.. I have followed the instructions, but with no success.
This plugin is yet unmatched and fulfills a real need for simple and effective collaboration, very well integrated within BuddyPress.
The pro version is even more powerful.
Use at your own caution! The plugin author is on record as not caring about future support for this plugin.
***** UPDATE ***** 3 Stars
MrMaz did resurface and has provided a alpha version on Github.
It appears to work except the sidebar issue still exists.
Getting it to work requires code editing and renaming files.

Since the update of Buddypress, this plug-in no longer works. It requires an association to a WordPress Page and that part is broken.
It has not been updated in over a year and it has had major sidebar issues since then. The members here have been kind enough to come up with a fix for the sidebar, but that does not help if you still can not use it.
It's a shame because this plug-in has some really nice features.
The display page completely loses it's formatting and it's all screwed up in the most unprofessional way. Totally sucks and is not useable.
Plugin author needs to keep this plugin up to date otherwise it needs to be removed from the WP plugin directory. It's unfortunate that WP does not monitor 3rd party plugins because this should definitely NOT be in the directory until corrected. tested and the re-released.
Not working on my theme.
Every other plugin works just fine.
Not sure what's going on but the comments vanish & links page display is all messed up.
