Is Ning is poised to be the next Facebook?

Ning is billed as being a tool for creating your own ‘white label’ social network. Recent data supports claims from the company that says that popularity is steeply on the increase. Alexa stats show that the site is attracting roughly a third of that of Bebo. According to comScore Ning is now getting over 3,000,000 users a month.

We first looked at Ning early in 2007 and tried out a couple of the features (want to see? – go to amnesia’s ning url: forget.ning.com). We probably would have done more with it but we didn’t like a large portion of the page being taken up with Google text ads …so we’ve let it sit there gathering dust.

We do however quite like Ning and think that there is definite promise especially with some new features on the way. The next 3 to 6 months will be very interesting to watch and if the traffic curve from the last 3 months continues then it shows every sign that it will be ‘the one to watch’ in 2008.
