Is there a way to limit users to only joining one social group and is there a way to limit users from only making one social group?
If those are not possible is there a built in count of social groups (like in the user profile) they belong to so I could limit it in code?
to your first question, no there is no limit (though you can of course -you can of course set it to review or private and the admin can then control membership.
There is no particular helper method though you can of course check the roles the user is involved in i.e. if it is a security role, social group or both i.e.
User.Social.Roles.Where((role) => role.SecurityMode != SecurityMode.SecurityRole
yes, a social group is just a role (so can be administered via admin->roles) - they have a different SecurityMode in the roles table and some additional meta data. - cathal connolly 8/1/2012
So are social groups sort of treated like special roles? - Dylan Barber 8/1/2012
