NING Closing All Free Sites around May 4, 2010

NING Closing All Free Sites around May 4, 2010

Even though I havent been much of an 'active' user, I have been visiting SOE about every day since late 2008. I have found lots of valuable information on many subjects, a lot of good readings and videos about thing we dont find in mainstream media. I am very sad to find out today that NING is changing its policies because lots of sites I visit on daily basis are with NING..

NING sites I've been visiting lately

However it looks like could be a good replacement for NING..

Another Ning sit that I am a member of has signed up with and it seems good and worth investigating. They are in the process now of setting up the new site and making it easy for member to swap over so that the transition is complete by May and that includes the transferring of all data as well. It seems quiet a lenghthy process to switch over and accomodate all members... would hate to see SOE miss out because the swap over was left to the last minute... lots of valued members may miss out or loose contact in the process.

Ning Update
Posted by John McDonald on April 15, 2010 at 9:39am in Announcements from Ning

Today we made some changes at Ning. I want to share with you the email Jason Rosenthal, our CEO, sent to all Ning employees:


When I became CEO 30 days ago, I told you I would take a hard look at our business. This process has brought real clarity to what's working, what's not, and what we need to do now to make Ning a big success.

My main conclusion is that we need to double down on our premium services business. Our Premium Ning Networks like Friends or Enemies, Linkin Park, Shred or Die, Pickens Plan, and tens of thousands of others both drive 75% of our monthly US traffic, and those Network Creators need and will pay for many more services and features from us.

So, we are going to change our strategy to devote 100% of our resources to building the winning product to capture this big opportunity. We will phase out our free service. Existing free networks will have the opportunity to either convert to paying for premium services, or transition off of Ning. We will judge ourselves by our ability to enable and power Premium Ning Networks at huge scale. And all of our product development capability will be devoted to making paying Network Creators extremely happy.

As a consequence of this change, I have also made the very tough decision to reduce the size of our team from 167 people to 98 people. As hard as this is to do, I am confident that this is the right decision for our company, our business, and our customers. Marc and I will work diligently with everyone affected by this to help them find great opportunities at other companies.

I've never seen a more talented and devoted team, and it has been my privilege to get to know and work with each and every one of you over the last 18 months.

We'll use today to say goodbye to our friends and teammates who will be leaving the company. Tomorrow, I will take you through, in detail, our plans for the next three months and our new focus.

Jason Rosenthal

I know many of you will have questions about this announcement. We will share detailed plans within two weeks.

I feel confident that this change in direction will be very positive for our premium service customers because Ning will be 100% focused on delivering the features and services which benefit you and help you achieve your goals.

I will be here to answer your questions and respond to your concerns. However, today I am focusing on my team, so there may be a delay in my responses.

VP Advocacy

Jason Rosenthal, what a jerk.

Cool! Thanks Tony!

Simmy, the facebook community belongs to Brad. I have yet to set one up. NING state that they will help migrate to another facility if needed, lets await their communication and take it from there.
Comment by Simmy on April 17, 2010 at 10:46am
Please Tony, when you receive the info, let us know what we can do to keep this community alive!
(What about the facebook community? Wouldn't be possible to transfer (some of) the material to that?)
