>Ning is a platform that allows people to easily create their own social networks or groups. I myself am part of many networks there, one of the prominent ones being cyclists.in for cyclists around India. Though the signing up is a lil problem cause I have to sign in everytime to comment or read discussions.
Recently they have announced they will be ending their free service which is quite sad. Must be a shock for quite a few people! Some time back there were similar ideas about Facebook that they might start charging. I think it wouldn’t be a good idea at all cause
There are newer areas that are still slowly adopting the network who will now bypass it and look elsewhere.
Many people would get out of the network leaving it for ‘elites’. This however could be a good thing, as it would ensure ingenuity of the members. Even if there were blatant marketeers there, then they would be only the high end ones 😛
Here is an article on BlogHer that has a list of other sites that can be used instead of Ning to create groups or social networks. What do you think about Ning turning into a paid service?
