Web 2.0 is all about social networking and making websites interactive for their users. With the advent of sites like Myspace and Facebook, it seems like there are more ways to communicate and socialize than ever before. Unfortunately, both sites are losing the battle to spam and will soon become as riddled with as many tacky profiles as Myspace has. Ning solves this problem, and many more…

A new site, Ning, is aimed to give you full control and create your own social network! It took me less than 5 minutes to setup my old fraternity’s social networking site, and the best part is, it’s FREE.

You can have your site hosted on Ning, or you can forward your current .com to the site easily. The site comes feature-rich with widgets such as events, photos (which can integrate into your Flickr account), videos, a comment wall, forums and much more. You can customize the look and feel of the site, and make changes instantaneously. If it’s for a company or organization, you can keep the site private, or you can go public and see if you can compete with the big boys. It’s like being Mark Zuckerberg, without the billions of dollars…

uh…well at least you get your own social network that you have full control over.

Create your own social network at Ning now!
