I'm doing my thesis, it is something like "social networking tools", where I introduce: OpenID, OAuth, hCard, XFN, OpenSocial, etc, etc, etc. So I have to develop something that has to do with it. My thesis mentor told me that it shouldn't take me more than one or two months of development. I was expecting to get an existing open social networking code and integrate it with some of the tools I introduce. I looked at Elgg, but it already has everything integrated and a lot of plugins! So I need a more basic social networking code, and integrate it with some social networking tools. So I have two questions.
Which open social networking code should I choose? (I guess I need some simple code that has connections, groups and profiles)
Which tools do you suggest I integrate? (This is not supposed to take me more than two months. I'm a 3-year-experienced Java and PHP developer).
Thanks in advance.
