Star Rating Top notch white label social networking!

Hoopla has been a great platform with excellent tools for managing and growing our community. We have close to 4k users on the site and it grows each day, much of that is attributed to the quality of the platform. The interactions with staff are always fast, friendly and helpful. The platform allows for relatively inexperienced users to manage the site as well as power users who can take it to another level if they choose to.
