Ningall you need is a good idea to run your own social application. Social apps let you match, transact, and communicate with other people. A few clicks, no coding (unless you want to), and you can be up and running with your own social app in minutes. Interesting. Thanks Pedro Vera

    Yeah, interesting if:

    1. You can’t afford a $10/mth hosted LAMP account
    2. You are savvy enough to code in ning’s PHP class library, but not savvy enough to download some other open class library to your $10/mth hosted LAMP account
    3. You prefer being locked into ning’s proprietary and non-portable library which means you’re stuck hosting at ning forever
    4. The “a few clicks” thing is great if the app you want to build is a clone of the exact same app someone else wrote before. But then why not just use their app? Oh, and did I mention you can’t take the app and move it off ning, ever.

    I’d like to see a Ning built using Ruby on Rails.

    It seems like you’d be able to write much simpler “plugins” or mini-apps in Ruby/Rails.
