Hello Lateef, thanks for the links, they were very helpful in composing my answer. Funny enough, I'm just hearing of wp-symposium for the very first time (:D so this shows that nobody knows everything).

Anyway, @yomiprof, Simple:Press is a forum plugin while WP-Symposium is a Social Network plugin. Therefore, the short answer to your question is: The difference between Simple:Press and Wp-Symposium is also the difference between a forum and a social network.

Now, if you compare this website (NG2G, which is a forum) with a site like Facebook (a social network), you should begin to understand the differences between the two plugins in your question.

In essence, a forum focuses mainly on discussions without much emphasis on the personal profiles and connections between members. While a social network emphasizes on the personal and private relationships and connections between the members.

As a further example, a social network (e.g Wp symposium) will let you upload pictures, post your status, add friends, communicate privately, share things etc, while a forum does not place so much emphasis on the user. Rather the emphasis is on topics and discussions.

In conclusion, Simple:Press will turn your Wordpress into a forum, while Wp-Symposium will give you a Social network.

Hope its clear enough, please let me know if I need to clarify.

PS: Another social network framework for wordpress is buddypress. Thats the one I knew before but I will take a closer look at this Wp-Symposium

Leave it for God, don't worry yourself. Leave it for God, don't cry no more.
