Using Hype to Build a New Social Network

Does anyone think it is possible to build an entirely new social network using Hype?

not impossible! but also not for the faint of heart. It would be a lot of work. But, please bear in mind. Hype (although it can be) is not at this current stage a solution in my opinion to any kind of web page building. SEO for one thing but there are other things which might become barriers when trying to build up a site.

I personally would go for an open source framework for a social network (Elgg, HumBub, Anahita, Stream to name a few) and make sure it’s compatible with Hype to be able to include the output HTML and JS.
