Ning offers an easy-to-use service that allows people to join and create Ning Networks. With more than 1.6 million Ning Networks created and 36 million registered users, millions of people every day are coming together across Ning to explore and express their interests, discover new passions, and meet new people around shared pursuits.
The unique feature of Ning is that anyone can create their own social network for a particular topic or need, catering to specific membership bases. Ning has many uses such as creating a fan site for your favorite artist, a social network for your family to enjoy, a place to organize a class reunion, and much more. The open-ended nature of Ning makes the possibilities unlimited.
To sign up as a user or to create a network is free. One way the site generates income is through the sale of advertising. Another source of income comes from offering users additional features.
