We thought about that. And we figured… hell yeah!
We hired the very best WordPress developers we could find, people who had been doing it for years and knew WordPress inside out. We showed them JomSocial and we told them “We want a powerful, scaleable plugin that’s as good as this.”
It took us a while—seventeen months to be precise—but we got there: an amazing new social networking plugin for WordPress!
PeepSo is amazing. It works flawlessly inside your WordPress site and has many of the familiar features you love in JomSocial. It’s light and super-easy to set up. PeepSo's version is currently RC4, which means it's still in beta but pretty much ready to be stable at any moment.
As soon as JomSocial 4.0 was released, and we’d finished partying, we began work on the next major version while still keeping an eye on the current stable release. We are now finalizing improvements and adding new features to the core before we focus on completely redesigning modules and applications to fit the wonderful new JomSocial 4 design.
Read on for a sneak peek of the major improvements and new features that you can expect to enjoy in the next release.
Version 4.0.7 is a bugfix release that addresses the photo viewing privacy issues and problems related to Facebook Connect feature.

Version 4.0.5 is a bugfix release. Users have been really helpful by reporting issues in the forums. We’re really grateful for that, and we’ve been busy tackling those bugs. You can see the full list of fixes and improvements in our 4.0.5 changelog.
Some things just work so much better together: fries and ketchup, Yoga and incense, Larry and Sergei, JomSocial and… well, just about all our products, actually.
ReadyBytes make some of the most popular third-party extensions for JomSocial, and we’ve been working closely with them over the last couple of weeks to make sure that their components work smoothly with new JomSocial 4.
Those improvements make up a large part of the changes we made in JomSocial 4.0.3 but you can see the full list of fixes and improvements in our changelog. Before you view that list, do read through this blog post to discover the most important new additions.
JomSocial 4.0.2 includes a bunch of new goodies that we know you’re going to love.
How do we know you’re going to love them?
Because there’s a good chance that you were one of the people who asked for them! Just about all the ideas in 4.0.2 come from users who used JomSocial 4, loved it and thought of ways to make it even better.
You can see the full list of fixes and improvements on our changelog page but do read through this blog post to find out about all the new things we’ve added.
The stable version of JomSocial 4 is out now.
This is a big deal. It’s a huge deal! For JomSocial 4, we did it all. We redesigned every single page and added more than 100 new features.
It’s friendlier, prettier… just better in every way. For you and for your users.
You’re going to love it!
Last week I mentioned that there were a few things you should know about JomSocial 4 before you upgrade. We added a few last minute changes...
While we were working on the amazing JomSocial 4, we also decided to completely redo Socialize. There were some bugs that we wanted to squish, we needed to keep up with the new JomSocial — and we wanted to give it a completely fresh, new look!
I am happy to announce the release of JomSocial 4 Beta! After many months of hard work, it's finally ready for beta testing. We've had some great feedback and suggestions on our community and it's made a big difference, so thank you for your help. We appreciate it!
JomSocial 4 Alpha is already active on our community at jomsocial.com/community and the feedback has been amazing! Hundreds of people have logged in, tried it and provided some really valuable feedback. They're helping us to give Version 4 those final touches.
With the release of the JomSocial 4 beta just around the corner, we’ve just got time for one final bugfix release for 3.2.1.
There are no known security issues in this release, but we do advise you to update your sites as it does include some important privacy and features patches. To see the full list of fixes and improvements please visit the changelog page.
This release ends the bug fixing for 3.2 series (unless some major security flaw is discovered). The next bug fixes will be for version 4.
I’ve been keeping you updated on our blog about the development of JomSocial 4.0, and the responses have been incredible. Our team has been working around the clock to provide you with the best social networking application for Joomla and beyond.
