About Drupal
The Drupal social publishing system has been downloaded over 2 million times since its inception and powers more than 400,000 web sites globally. Drupal is unique because it was built at the intersection of Web CMS and Social Software from the beginning. Because it is a robust web application platform, a community of tens of thousands of developers have been able to build functionality for Drupal and create a Social Publishing solution- a feat that is impossible for a proprietary vendor with their own internal R&D team. Drupal includes an enterprise class content management system and is used to deliver a wide variety of web applications including single or multi-user blogs, wikis, community networks, digital media portals, e-commerce, and many more. Assisted by a thriving ecosystem of consultants and developers, a diverse set of organizations use Drupal including SonyBMG, Warner Brothers Records, the New York Observer, Forbes, Disney, Intel, Harvard University, and Amnesty International.
