Just in case you didn’t hear the news, Ning is phasing out its free networks.
What does it mean if you are currently running a free network on Ning, is that your days are numbered.
What options are out there?
One of the groups that I’m a member of opted to create a private group on Yahoo.
Another group that I know decided to go to Grouply.
Others with the time and gumption (which I personally am still trying to find) are going with BuddyPress. BuddyPress has a Ning to BuddyPress guide. Perhaps I’ll be more motivated when more BuddyPress themes emerge.
In the meantime, here are some more Ning alternatives to keep in mind.
