    All the features listed above have been coded with OOPS concept in mind. Each feature has its own separate class system and work co-independently from others. The reasoning behind this is to avoid data clutter and making huge tables which in return slow the performance. The database design has been created with additions of modules in future that is why Buddy Zone has been able to evolve to latest trends in social network without major changes to backend as well as database design. Buddy Zone is the only out of the box script in market which has been able to generate more then 300,000 members for customers and still work flawlessly. The main examples of Big Websites are:

    There are many more websites which have more then 100,000 members database which proves the quality behind the code of Buddy Zone.

    The major quality which can be seen by most programmers is the ease with which the code can be implemented to make new modules and use data interchangeably. The separate classes also act as an API for getting data to and from the Buddy Zone database.

    DB Structures Of Buddy Zone

    There are total 201 tables in Buddy Zone databases.

    All modules have separate set of tables for e.g.:

    Events module has the following tables:

    • events
    • events_cat
    • events_comments
    • events_rsvp

     

    Separate tables for each module enables a developer to make their own changes to the module or add new modules with each.

    Data Capatuirng Capabilities

    The data collected is via php script on front end. The data collected for each module is stored in their respective tables along with proper indexation. Virtually (unlimited) data can be collected in tables as supported by the mysql system and linux system. The limit on each table size is 2 gb as imposed by linux file system.

    Marketing / Advertising Capabilities

    The marketing is done by inviting the members from inside buddy zone by other members as well as from the importing of address books.

    The advertising supports facebook like pay per click advertisements as well as the google adsense advertisements along with website owners own banners in gif and flash. The advertisement both allow you to add a PPC or a PPM advertisement.

    Update Content From Mobile Device

    With Buddy Zone Version 2.8, we added a unique feature in Buddy Zone – Facebook Clone, which allows your website users to add their content or share with their friends from any mobile device with internet. There are 2 ways it can be done which are:

    • Via Email :: In this way, a user is given a unique code and using that code they can upload a photo or a video directly from their mobile device and share with their friends and family. What they do is, they attach the photo or the video and email it to a given email address along with the code as emails subject and message of email as caption for photo or video. Buddy Zone intelligently checks the specified email for any new content and if anything new is sent it automatically adds it to your site which is then shared with the users friends and family. We also added a unique algorithm which immediately discards the spam messages and deletes them from the specified email address.
    • Via Mobile Website :: In this way, users visit your website’s mobile version the demo of which can be seen at: http://buddyzone.vastal.com/demo/mobile/ and logon with their email and password.

The status messages can be seen on the mobile site as well and a new status or photo or video or question can also be added from the mobile device.

    This feature is something which gives your website and edge from all the rest. Your users can at any time from anywhere share photos, videos, status with their friends and family or can at any time from anywhere see photos, videos or status from their friends and family.
