    Pros
    Ning for me was a great adventure in learning a new platform.
    Wonderful way to connect company-wide with the message boards and chat functionality.
    Helped me to create my community, good design studio, ease of use.
    Cons
    I have never had as many problems with a website as I do with Ning. I have never had an experience as bad as I have with Ning.
    You will look very unprofessional advertising a website with constant problems, that is constantly offline, and when it is, rarely works correctly. There are better website platforms.
    We were also able to prove this with clear emails. But Ning has been stalling us for several months now and refuses to pay us back.

    Ning seems to be alive again. Support is cool

    Reviewed 7 years ago

    I suggested Ning software for building alumni community of my college.

    Pros

    I saw their new design - it`s cool. It`s a good sign that the company is moving ahead. And I wouldn`t risk to change a tested since 2013 Ning to a new product. Especially now, when Ning adds new features.

    Cons

    It has been quiet for a long long time. Previous management didn't put any efforts to contact with creators. Let's see what will happen after their big changes.

    Vendor response

    Elena, thank you! We are aspiring for more and making big changes within to make your user experience better. You are welcomed to share your thoughts with our customer support. Always yours, Ning :)

    Most reliable online Community Builder site

    Reviewed 6 years ago

    Great platform for very small staffed community sites!

    Pros

    We build a Ning site for our Non-Profit community. it grew to 3000 members within 2 year! Since I was the only webmaster, I needed a platform that saves me all the technical work and let me just administrate it, and Ning was the choice!

    Cons

    Customer support was not as fast, but they did respond by next day. The rss feed modules would not update at times and I had to empty the cache for the site a few time. But no big deal.

    Ning for me was a great adventure in learning a new platform.

    Reviewed 6 years ago

    I got my feet wet with online marketing with Ning as my first and still most loved content management system. I learned a great deal.

    Pros

    I used Ning for three different attempts at building a social network that was self-sustaining over a period of several years. What attracted me to it was of course, having my own niche social network where like-minded individuals can come to support each other in their online or offline pursuits. The Ning community and web site is a niche social site in itself and that is a built-in peer support...

    Cons

    In the beginning of my Ning journey which was approximately nine years ago, I noticed that there was a great deal of concern by Ning users about some of the developer features and the lack of a member payment feature. For instance, the Facebook sign in feature didn't work right for years. That was a development issue. I believe that most of the earlier development bugs were worked out through...

    Solid solution for creating a company-wide social network

    Reviewed 5 years ago
    Pros

    Wonderful way to connect company-wide with the message boards and chat functionality.

    Cons

    It would be nice if the maximum file size limit was increased, as we often have to store files on a separate server and link to them on Ning.

    Reviewed 7 years ago

    Very easy to use, great support working 24/7

    Pros

    Design studio, extensive guides and support, forum feature. There are the top. Also I loved that in the future I can create events and send email broadcasts.

    Cons

    Trial period is only 2 weeks - which is quite short for me, as I needed time to attract members and see how to communicate with them

    Vendor response

    Thank you for being sincere! We do care and read your reviews, it's our motivation to become better and give more. You know that we are open for discussion, so you can write to our Customer Support as well. Will be excited to chat with you:) Always yours, Ning.
