What is Ning? www.ning.com
Launched in October of 2005, Ning is a social network designed around creating social networks. Ning invites users to create their own social network by going through a series of steps that name the social network, select a color scheme, and allow for unique proﬁle questions. In some ways, Ning is a portal to mini-social networks since you can choose to join any of the thousands of user-created networks, and in other ways, it is a social network development platform.
Some useful Ning networks you may consider joining:
Ning in Education is a social network created by Steve Hargondon designed for people using Ning in Education.
Sierra College on Ning is a social network designed for social interaction by Sierra College employees. To join the Sierra College network go to http:// sierracollege.ning.com/?xgi=81XpkEF .
