We need to develop a social media like chat in which users can message each other or create a channel. We are planning to use RocketChat or Mattermost under the hood to develop a custom UI. How do notifications work in that case? Has anyone done it? Or is there any better way to implement it.

I've used Slack for team communication but I'm looking for a new collaboration tool that allows advanced permissions.

  1. Enable/disable DMs.
  2. Private room, where only allowed members can communicate but still can't send DMs if it's disabled.

I'm considering Mattermost or RocketChat. Does anyone have experience with them? Otherwise, any recommendations?

Mattermost Alternatives & Comparisons

What are some alternatives to Mattermost?
Slack
Imagine all your team communication in one place, instantly searchable, available wherever you go. That’s Slack. All your messages. All your files. And everything from Twitter, Dropbox, Google Docs, Asana, Trello, GitHub and dozens of other services. All together.
RocketChat
Rocket.Chat is a Web Chat Server, developed in JavaScript, using the Meteor fullstack framework. It is a great solution for communities and companies wanting to privately host their own chat service or for developers looking forward to build and evolve their own chat platforms.
Riot
Riot brings custom tags to all browsers. Think React + Polymer but with enjoyable syntax and a small learning curve.
HipChat
HipChat is a hosted private chat service for your company or team. Invite colleagues to share ideas and files in persistent group chat rooms. Get your team off AIM, Google Talk, and Skype — HipChat was built for business.
Gitter
Free chat rooms for your public repositories. A bit like IRC only smarter. Chats for private repositories as well as organisations.
