WordPress wins best Social Networking CMS
From their site:
Packt is pleased to reveal that WordPress is the first winner of the 2007 Open Source CMS Award, picking up the best Open Source Social Networking Content Management System. In a very close category, WordPress came out in front of Elgg and Drupal, who finished joint second.
WordPress is a good blogging platform. It's not for social networking. It's a blog. WordPress MU (multi-user) is more of a social networking application than its blogging conterpart. Even Drupal is more for Social Networking than WordPress. And Elgg is a social networking cms. And since it tied for second, it shows me that it has a strong user base that believes in it.
Social Networking brings people together. I'm not sure how WordPress does that.
