"This looks very promising. I'm intrigued and would be interested in hearing more of your thoughts on Grouply as it compares to Ning. Also, do you know if there is a limit to how many sites we can create?"

"Well said - nearly all of this applies as I contemplate how to approach discussing future use of ning vs other options in my educational setting."

"I'm surprised no-one has mentioned advertising... I assume that (oh, I'm very new to Ning btw - so sorry if this off track)... I assume that Ning was making money originally through advertising? The more hits a site got, the more…"

"I'm disappointed, even with the free Ning mini for educators. Without groups and some of the other features, the Ning mini is useless. It's basically just a blog/wiki which I can create for free any place else. I am also concerned that…"
