Ning is a cool site with an easy to navigate way to set up your own social networking site. Now you know I am rabid about ABOUT pages so here is an excerpt from the Ning site.
We started Ning with a simple premise. We wanted to see what would happen if everyone had the freedom to create their own social network for anything. We thought the results would be amazing, but they have truly surpassed our expectations. From artists to musicians, athletes, bloggers, video channels, journalists, students, educators, parents, craft hobbyists, alumni, and interest groups, the range and diversity of the social networks on Ning are profound. We thank you for using our platform and hope we can continue to relentlessly improve both the platform and the social networks powered by it.
They have video and photo sharing that is about to get even better. Plus much more. They even provide the opportunity to place ads on your site if you upgrade the service.
I am going to shut up now. This is going to be a very short post because I want you to run on over and check it out. Right NOW! I wonder how many boomer sites are on Ning? Uhmm
