I’ll leave, then. If I have to pay for a site, I want FAR more control over it than the crappy menu system at Ning offers.
As a member of the nonprofit community, I’m concerned about the impact that this decision will have on charitable and educational institutions. If you share this concern, please take a moment to sign the Change.Org petition to “Keep Ning Free for Nonprofit and Educational Use” at http://bit.ly/dw7HSN and pass along to friends/colleagues via twitter, facebook, email, etc.

Another free alternative is mixxt.com, offering functionalities very similar to Ning but with some additions.
Some of the advantages are:
- Strong Community Management features (e.g., newsletter system, access control)
- Powerful sub-groups
- Full collaboration features including wikis, image albums, file systems, event-management and CMS
- Advanced customization
mixxt’s philosophy is different from Ning’s: it is based on White Labeled solutions for large institutions and enterprises, as well as Freemium services.
mixxt networks are especially popular among education, work-related and event networks.
Users wanting to import their Ning network to mixxt find a useful tool in our Ning importer (http://bit.ly/migrate-ning).
Give your own mixxt network a try for free here: (http://mixxt.com)!
That last sentence will soon be “Ning currently hosts 2.3 hundred social networks.”
[...] Jeff MacDougall (by the way, nice slogan! ..) founded on ning (ack!) – they absorbed the TMA community after ning went kinda “corporate.” [...]
if i joing ning will i get paid by drawing memebers on my site ?
