Ning is a social networking application and home to thousands of communities commonly called “nings.” You can find networks of people with whom you share interests.

Ning communities can be
  • public (anyone can view and join)
  • moderated (anyone can view, membership must be approved)
  • private (only members can view and contribute content).

Nings have a rich variety of features that can be turned on or left off, depending how the ning community creator sets up the ning.
Common spaces include
  • chatning_screen2.jpg
  • discussion forums
  • event calendars
  • videos and photos
  • calendar of events
Each member may have
  • a profile
  • wall
  • blog

Each ning also has its own internal messaging system, as well as a notification system to your preferred email.
