Elgg is a great as development platform for a custom social network. Although it can be a little challenging the first 2-3 weeks when developing, after you master the idea behind the view, override, hooks, actions and plugins, it is great for rapid development.
While out of the box Elgg use d to be sluggish, this is no longer the case. Now we do not see any disadvantage for the unmatched flexibility.
( we have no core Elgg function, just users)
