BuddyPress turns your WordPress blog into a community with an easy-to-integrate social network building plug-in. That’s a fancy way of saying you can keep conversations happening directly on your blog, which means more talking about your latest ideas with the people who are already reading your words. One of the wonderful things about BuddyPress is how well it works with the blog features and plug-ins you already have on your blog — and you can pick and choose the BuddyPress features you use, so your community is exactly what you’ve envisioned.
