last one standing
This is yet another one of those instances where you say, "Yep. Saw that one coming a mile away." Ning, which some of you may have heard of, is completely killing off all of their free stuff. After that it will most likely die a quick death.
Who will be next after Ning? How about Facebook? How about Twitter? Yes, it could happen. Chances are good we're going to see a major player in the social network arena take the fall soon enough.
This is why I always tell people that if you care about your online presence at all, get a domain, as in a dot-com/net/org/whatever. It costs between $9 to $15 a year for registration and $5 a month to host it (such as through these guys).
Here's what I've always found interesting about "big things" that happen on the internet. If you have your own web site, it will survive all the "cool free stuff" for as long as you choose to keep it online. What's more interesting is that as long as you post to your site regularly, it will receive more traffic over time by default just because it's there.
Funny how that works. 🙂
