Ning has hit a pretty significant milestone reports cnet. The social network enabler has just seen its one millionth network set up. This was accomplished in two years which makes the number even more impressive (average of 1,370 networks started per day).
Of course, it doesn’t hurt when Marc Andreessen is a co-founder and the timing was good considering the upswing in popularity of social marketing / media / networking over the past two years. The flip side of that is the possibility that the folks at Ning had a pretty accurate crystal ball and called this one pretty well. Either way, being good fortune or recognizing opportunity the success is there.
Ning has overcome its fair share of adversity as well.
