How to set up your own Social Network with Ning

Ning is an online platform that allows its users to create their own Social Network and join Social Networks created by other members within the site. This service is free and very easy to use. This online platform has pretty much the same features as other Social Networks such as MySpace and Facebook. Some of the features available are blogs, forums, groups, and of course you can add videos, photos, widgets and profile customization. By creating your own Social Network you can build an online community of people who share the same interests and activities, or who are interested in exploring the interests and activities of others.

You can use it to:

  • Engage coworkers, friends, and family
  • Connect to other departments within your organization and globally
  • Post projects and project team members so the entire company is kept informed
  • Allow individual blogging, discussions, groups
  • Share videos, photos, and messaging
  • Socially-engage - interact with others that have similar interests
Here is a video that gives you a quick look on how to set up your own Social Network in Ning.

Ning also offers some premium services such as domain name, remove Ning promotional links, remove ads or control the ads that appear on your site, and space and bandwidth upgrades for a small fee.
This is a great service, and if you're looking to start your own Social Network I really recommend you look into Ning.
Ning anyone?
