If you need a collaboration solution for your organization that includes social networking features, this is a good choice.
I use Groupsite.com for a social media certificate class I teach for Drury University, and I have been happy even with the free version.
The Groupsite platform is easy to customize, and is pretty user friendly and intuitive. You can host forums, networks, maintain a calendar, and more. It is worth checking out if you need to organize a group of people around a topic or project.
