Looking for a platform that I can build a closed community and share photos and comments, any ideas?

I'm hoping to build on top of a mobile platform a specific application that allows people to share photos and then have others comment and or talk more about this - can be messaging or just typical iOS application. Any thoughts?

Maybe MightyBell would fit the bill?

Look at Chupamobile for pre-developed apps with source code:

You can have a scalable Instagram type app with server support in a couple days for a few hundred dollars (note: many still use Parse so need to understand their migration plan).

I had pretty low expectations when I explored this last year. Realistically, what could you get for $399? I was pretty blown away. I branded, customized and integrated an app into our environment in ~ 3 weeks.

I think the best could be using wordpress with buddypress and bbpress plugins and templates
You can find templates in buddypress.com

Try "Slack" - its the best for team building and community sharing

Slack is great, and has a lot of different functionality (they just added team videoconferencing to the paid version).

Another option for photo and news sharing would be Place -https://place.xyz/. They have both a site and an app.

Diaspora would be my choice for this purpose -- https://github.com/diaspora/diaspora -- I can set this up for you (or anyone else) in 20 minutes if you provide me with a host? Let me know when you're ready to do so.

Not sure from your question if you're looking for a _development_ platform to build on but if so, you might want to check out (my company's platform) Ostetso (ostetso.com). It's designed to give a photo-sharing community to any app. We've also put up source code to an entire instagram-like photo-sharing app on Github (github.com/PrecipiceLabs/Ostetso_SharePictures) so most of the heavy lifting is already done.

So, basically, you'd be able to use this to generate an app where people can do what you're asking.

Should note that the ability to comment on a photo is still in beta but we'd be happy to get you onboard to try some stuff out. Feel free to shoot me an email to ron at precipicelabs if you've got any questions!

Deanna, can you clarify whether you're looking to build an internal tool or an app for others to use? Is this a consumer app or for the enterprise? May help narrow down recommendations.

thanks for all these great suggestions/ we will be using the platform to build a consumer facing application (iOS or just web).
