Thing #26–Join the Ning

June 2nd, 2009 · No Comments

I joined the 23 Things on a Stick Ning.  What’s a Ning?  Good Question.  Ning is a platform for creating personal online social networks.  Think of it as your own private Facebook.  To create your own network, you just go to the Ning website, register, and use the tools they provide to set things up.  Ning provides hosting and has free versions that allow you to get started at no cost.  Most Ning users set up social networks around a particular topic or community that wants an easy, no-cost way to enable communication between members.

So, I’m on the 23 Things on a Stick Ning.  As you might expect, it’s full of library folks sharing information.  It’s not all about 23 Things or Web 2.0.  There’s people discussing library careers, books read, and other interesting topics.  I’ve posted some information about myself and connected up with a few friends.  I don’t know if it will replace my Facebook account, but it’s a fun place to go and communicate with people interested in the 23 Things program.
