Take a look at the http://buddypress.org/ plugin

+1 for buddypress - it has all the facebook-style functionality of friends, statuses etc, and it's easy to set up blogs for users. This site (CUNY academic commons) is a good example. –  djb Nov 27 '11 at 18:45

You can try Mingle. I haven't used it, but it looks pretty cool and very simple. https://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/mingle/ http://wpmingle.com/
