Webmasters Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for pro webmasters. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Is there any app similar to Facebook that you can install on your own server?

Like a community app where users can create their own account and post messages, blogs, photos, add friends, etc.

Except, it can't be a hosted solution. It would have to be installable on a private server or intranet.

Was going to suggest it, but +1 to you since you already have! –  Melanie May 5 '11 at 9:45

I recommend BuddyPress. It's a free, open source, extendable, well maintained extension to WordPress that provides Facebook-style features on a self-hosted setup.

The download instructions are here.

Oxwall and Elgg are both open source and free, so you can self-host.
