December 14, 2009: Ning
In our two special-feature articles this issue, we mention “Hansen’s Online Social-Media” Formula,” which recommends the minimum collection of social-media sites a careerist needs to belong to to have an effective online presence. Niche networking sites are part of this list. But how can you find a niche networking site in your field?
A great place to start is Ning, a social platform for the world’s interests and passions online, boasting more than 1.8 million Ning Networks and 39 million registered users. If you can’t find a social-network in your niche on Ning, you can always start your own.
Ning offers an easy-to-use service that allows people to join and create Ning Networks. Millions of people every day are coming together across Ning to explore and express their interests, discover new passions, and meet new people around shared pursuits.
