We need to choose the one we want to keep!

My pick is:

community, friends, networking, groups, profiles

I hadn't paid much attention to tags but, now that you made me look; there are 8 tags in readme.txt:

profiles, groups, activity, direct messaging, notifications, friends, community, social networking

What currently shows up in the WordPress Plugin Directory is 4 tags:

activity, groups, Notifications, profiles

I'm not a math genius but 4 seems to be less than 5 and 5 could have been achieved given that 8 was the initial count. Not sure why the capitalization of notifications when it isn't capitalized in Readme.txt but then, there is a lot that I don't know.

Having stated the above, I'm OK, with what is currently proposed for 5 tags.

Thinking more about it, I believe we should only consider what's available without any optional components.

So I'm updating my suggestion to:
community, group, members, network, self-hosted

About group if it can refer to the BP Groups component, I'm actually considering the verb
