I am looking for white label social networking software that has chat,video, blog, rss feeds, and virtual currency for less than 1000 people. I have looked into a few companies like ning and social go. I would prefer to host it myself. I am going to be hiring a programmer so it does not have to be wysiwyg but I still need to have the ability to add content myself. Would like to spend less than $500. Thanks in advance.

I have checked out buddypress, seems like it is crashing alot. –  Bill Dec 28 '09 at 17:17
Crashing? Can you elaborate? –  ceejayoz Dec 28 '09 at 17:40
The reviews on their sites www.buddypress.org –  Bill Dec 28 '09 at 21:23
I wouldn't base any conclusions on that. Try it for yourself. It worked perfectly for me. –  ceejayoz Dec 29 '09 at 15:37

Maybe DotNetNuke can feet in your needs, It has a lot of modules already done and open, But You also can add in new modules.

You could set up a NoseRub server. Or you could integrate your website with Google Wave to give it social features.
