CNET has details of’s public launch at the Web 2.0 Summit this week.

While the company has been operating for more than a year, this week was its official coming-out announcement.

If you’ve not heard of Ning, it lets you easily create you own social networking sites. Options include the creation of your own YouTube-style video site, and a MySpace-style social networking platform.

I’ve been playing around with Ning, and it gets my thumbs-up simply because of ease of use. I’ve already used it to create a local networking site for Internet marketers in the Triangle area of North Carolina, and even tested out their video service.

The company plans to offer new features and upgrades in December, which should make it even more compelling.

  • Couple of questions.

    Is it a single log in system for all? So if they sign up for your site, they get to log into mine too?

    Looks very interesting. I can setup my own subdomain to use for the site so visitors never leave. I can also remove the Ning bar and have access to all user data in case I ever decide to move to my own platform.

    Seems like a great way to 2.0ize a current web 1.0 website.
