Keeping in line with more from WordPress MultiUser here is another plugin to use while building your site.
This is a pretty simple one but of great benefit when creating a community. It allows you to create a page listing the other blogs/sites that are created. It is always up to date with the latest changes and fits cleanly into most themes and has the ability to be customized.

This plugin lets you setup comment integration network wide very simply for Twitter, Facebook and Google+. As the admin you get to setup all the integrations necessary to make this work and it goes network wide for so that all users of your network have a consistent comment section. take a little time to get set up but worth the effort if you want to allow more than just the standard comment system.
