In Response To: Start your own social community like MySpace...Free Script (Michael Mayhew)

I was reading an article on the CBC this morning that Netscape founder, Marc Andreessen, has relaunched a custom social network service similar to MySpace.

The article says:

Features include videos, photos, music, discussion forums, user profiles, and blogs all offered on MySpace to its own users but Ning grants greater control over the final product. Creators can also designate whether their sites are public or private.

The free version of the service gives Ning the right to run its own ads on the social networks its users create. Operators can opt to pay $19.95 US a month to run their own ads or no ads at all.

Apparently you can also set it up so it uses your own top level domain name. This might be an alternative to installing your own script, and let them help advertise it for you. I've noticed on www.ning.com that they profile some of the custom groups. Another plus would be using their bandwidth instead of your own. In the last year or so I've seen different clients exceed their alloted bandwidth on their hosting accounts all due to the download of large binary files, audio and video.

Best Regards,
