Must Have
Recommended by James Buchan on July 12th, 2018 at 2:39pm

We were looking for a solution that would allow us to connect admin's to new members and give them a feeling of being part of a community via an automated message - this plugin was the answer and went even further than we hoped for. Installation was a breeze and very easy to configure. Highly Recommended!

Essential plugin for any network!
Recommended by Kenneth Leeks on December 1st, 2017 at 12:35am

I LOVE this plugin! I had a custom plugin like this, but it was kind of buggy and functioned no where near this. If you have SE4, grab this plugin as it's a very useful feature for welcoming and giving tips to new members, via private message or profile comment (I use the private message option).

Thank you for this free plugin!

Amazing plugin

Lovin' Tom Friend
Recommended by Jennifer Simpson on October 21st, 2016 at 5:02am

I used to go through and greet each new member by hand and send a friend request. Even though I used a template, it took a considerable amount of time to do and there were times when sign up volume was so high that I couldn't keep up with it. My existing members actually noticed this and commented that it was sad I didn't always keep up with it. They genuinely liked the greeting and intro from the admin.

I have downloaded/ bought probably 50 SE plugins and this is the only one I feel comfortable reviewing at this point because it's the only one I didn't have a problem with. This is a perfect little plugin that does exactly what it says it will. It's intuitive and easy to set up. I'd like to thank the devs for providing this little gem. It has saved me a lot of time and helped me with the onboarding process for new members tremendously. Very cool!

Richest Social Experience
Recommended by Sage Kalmus on October 26th, 2015 at 6:33pm

The Social DNA trilogy adds the richest social experience of any social plugin package I've come across. Any limitations I've encountered were the fault of the respective social network and not a deficiency in the plugin. More importantly even, perhaps, their tech support has been incredibly responsive and helpful throughout the integration process. Beyond recommending this particular set of plugins, I recommend this company.
