Current status of the Ning Platform is always available on the Ning Status Blog.

I always welcome the Ning interface, granting loved the versatility, the easy customization.

A year ago I've been working a project to invest time and money (perucool.com).

I like and a lot of new updates and price ($ +100 monthly) is acceptable because it thought doing something "big".

However, I work my brand using ning services, which is perfect, but with the new policies, Ning brand will work using my services..

On the other hand you could previously avoid competition from intermediate knowledge and were unaware that the platform of your social network, now will be very easy to become competitive.

Nothing will prevent your competitors, acquire a Ning social network, hire a bulk email service and exclusive goodbye to your niche, competition for everywhere!.

Under these concepts, I was looking for alternatives and share them.

I share links require hosting.

platforms:

ire testing each if anyone has used any of these and not "worked" warning to avoid.

Excuse my English, I speak Spanish

      • I just took a look and emailed them to ask about importing members/content.  They replied very promptly as follows: "Yes you can import content but it's not automatic. It has to be done manually."  Yes we can import members for you. You just need to download them from your Ning's control panel.". I guess by the control panel" they mean the CSV spreadsheet.  

        If they have a free trial I may investigate further ....

        • Problem seems to be that we don't have the import option working from the Ning side anymore. I won't say we have been cut off but I am not pleased, many help tickets are being put in now. 

    • This reply was deleted.
      • I just sent them a message and they responded within 20 minutes!  I wanted to know if "who's online" was available and it is.

        • I had my reply too that quick Donna. I asked 3 questions: Can they import data from Ning? Yes they can. On their Terms of service they mentioned that they didn't allow audio / video streaming while advertising it on their features set. I complained about that and they said they will correct the mistake on their TOS because they offer the feature fully (Yes we can upload and share our music and videos). My last question was whether they accept payments via PayPal and Yes they do.

          Except something else I did miss comes up, I guess this might be it for my two networks here. For the first time, I am beginning to feel like to migrate.

      • John you may want to hop on over to excreators.com where this is being tested now someone has already worked member and data transfer but I believe they are taking their time just to make sure before anyone does the 30 day trial.

        • I don't see socialsitecreator listed or discussed on excreators.com  Skye. Am I missing the link?

          • I am a member there and I do not see it either.  I think SocialEngine is being tested, not socialsitecreator

            • That's right Donna. I am a member there too.

              I have updates from Socialsitecreator.com

              They can migrate your current Ning members to their platform (that's free). But I was more interested in content migration and now they have confirmed that they can migrate ALL your Ning network content to their platform at a one time fee of $100 per site.

              So we have the option of getting members to their platform and building new content or paying for all content to be moved.

    • Since no one can find out anything about them, nor have we heard of them, can you tell us how you know about them?
