This social group system for XenForo is unlike any other created to date.

This is a complete, fully configurable social group system that allows for group discussions, forums and a basic group photo album.

The ability to create each section of the group is fully usergroup permissions based. So if you don't want a user group to create a photo album, you just turn off that ability.

  • Create Group Forum
  • Create Group Discussions*
  • Create Group Photo Album (with photo comments)
  • Optionally show group information in group forum.
  • Optionally show group information in group forum threads.
  • Add/Remove Group Moderators
  • Transfer Group Ownership
  • Change/Add Group Node Category Icons
  • Change/Add Group Forum Icons
  • Groups can be open, private or invite only
  • And more!

*Group discussions are totally separate from XenForo's node system and they are not interchangable. Think of group discussions as giant conversations (private or otherwise).

For those that want to import their social groups from vBulletin 3.8 or 4.x, an importer is available on my site.

WARNING: This add-on requires that the standard user group permission system is being used. In other words, all users must be registered users (even admins) and any other user groups are additional user groups for users.

Excellent Support from this addon Author!
Very satisfied with the addon quality.
Will buy few more addons from you :).
Super add-on, great support.
It is simple to use and give a lot of social fun.
A problem was solved very fast (fast response from Snog) afer installed.
When XF2 is coming out i will purchase the xf2 version of Social Groups.
Amazing Addon.

Apart from being so well built, what truly makes this addon shine is Snog's amazing support and friendliness. Hes been helping me for several days now and answering my questions well in advance before purchase.

He quickly showed me how to set it up to my needs and was able to help me fix a couple of things that were ultimately my fault for not noticing as quick.

Would definitely buy from him again, xenforo needs more Snogs.
I cannot express how helpful and supportive Snog is with any problems and issues - the plugin itself is great and we only had issues in the first place because our webmaster decided to go and code some things "his way". Never had better support. If there were more than five stars I would be awarding them.
Running absolutely perfect in Xenforo version 1.5.0, updates and support five stars, the best way to manage groups. Highly recommended. 999999999% ★★★★★
Add-on works great! One minor bug when installing originally, but fixed in minutes. Haven't had any other issues, very easy to setup too! Would definitely recommend this add-on :)
We migrated from vBulletin 3.8 with thousands of social groups. After carefully researching all of the group alternatives, we found that Snog's Social Groups was clearly the most developed solution. Snog worked with us to build an importer and has responded very quickly to any support requests. While this addon does not yet have all the features of the old vB social groups, the author continues to add features and improvements on a regular basis. If you have old vB social groups data, don't hesitate to purchase this addon and resurrect your old groups!
Once again an outstanding add on by Snog with the instant support to go with it. I have now have this running on both my forums and it really add a great deal of value to both my forums. Having the ability to create the two different type of groups as in a discussion or a forum group makes it a must have. The options that come with it make it great to be able to allow the members to tweak their group to work in a number of different ways.
This is a brilliant add-on. Easily customizable and with lots of different set up permissions.

Snog is unbelievably helpful - I made a couple of suggestions and the next day Snog released an update which included my suggestions being implemented! You can't get better than that!

Absolutely amazing :)
We have just switched to this from a previous social forum plugin and immediately I have found that it works better, easier to configure and looks better. The ability to add sub-forums is also a plus and limiting other options with the inclusion of images is a great feature and worth the price for the effort gone into this.
