BuddyPress is the best tool (technically, Plugin) for WordPress which can help you setup your very own social network website.

All you need to look is for a theme matching all the requirements at your end and is also compatible with the BuddyPress.

In case if you wish to give this tool a try before you can begin an actual social network you have in mind, trying it out in a free theme is a good strategy.

Note: The themes mentioned below only works with the self-hosted version of WordPress which means you will require your own domain + WordPress web hosting. For this, I recommend SiteGround to host your site for as little as $3.95 + you get FREE SSL, Free domain & support.

Or even in the case, you don’t have the budget for a premium product, going with a free theme can still be good, considering if you have only the best options in front.

So, to help everyone here in both scenarios, I’m compiling a list of best free BuddyPress themes. All you need to do is to go through this list, check details of themes, check their demos, and I promise that you’ll find, at least, a couple of them, matching the requirements perfectly.
