    I was wondering what you thought about ning

    I have a ghost hunting team and have tired the free trial of ning
    and would like to get some feedback before I have to start paying to use that service.

    Ning has good quality and will add up to your site's value. But is not enough.

    I have two big networks on Ning (well.. one big and one wanna be big, lol)...

    Well, for money paid, I would say pretty good stuff. You can have a very good hand of tools for 20$ / month. You don't think about managing servers, bandwidth etc..

    You can fairly easy promote your stuff to your members by sending them messages or sharing content from the site.

    Bad sides - horrible looking and functioning forums, not being able to completely export your member (you can export everything but passwords, I know passwords are protected everywhere but when having full control of the site then there could be a way to decrypt passwords)...

    There are spammers out there building profile links and sending messages but all links are nofollow so I guess they don't know that, lol

    Overall, pretty good platform for money involved
