After being selected as a Microsoft Student Partner many things have changed from my routine life. I feel more confident & entertaining as an MSP. But the work schedule makes me go mad. Let it be my part. Here i am going to post about Ning ! .... its a site which provides you a facility to create your own social networking site like Orkut.,FaceBook.,Hi5 etc... Its really a gud one.
Ning is an online platform for people to create their own social networks. Ning is Andreessen's third company (after Netscape and Opsware). Ning competes with large social sites like MySpace and Facebook by appealing to people who want to create their own social networks around specific interests with their own visual design, choice of features and member data.
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. At its launch, Ning offered several simple base websites developed internally and by members of a closed beta. In late September 2006, Ning narrowed its focus to offering a group website, a photos website, and a videos website for people to copy and use for any purpose. These three templates were later superseded by a single customizable application aimed at enabling anyone to easily create their own social network.
However, Ning does allow developers to have some source level control of their social networks, enabling them to change features and underlying logic.
