To NING or Not to NING

We have been a paying NING member for many years.  We feel that social media is about owning engagements.  We used NING to build private label websites with built in social communities.  Our sites have been some of the best in their category.  This success is a blessing and curse at the same time.  We have some of the biggest fan networks that you can build on NING.  

Why would I call that type of success a curse?  Because the effort put into building a successful network on NING on helps NING.  You are building a community full of content that benefits NING over the network creator.  So after 400,00 photos, 300,000 videos, 450,000 blogs from over 64,000 members we are leaving NING.

Our new communities will launch with http://www.shane-carwin.com.  The new Carwin Community will be similar to the NING community but will encompass some of the features we love about NING. The entire network has been ported over so if you are a member of the NING site you are a member of the new site.  The migration wont be easy as we have over 13 NING Pro accounts to move.  However our super talented team have already begun the process. 

Exciting times ahead!
