In July, we will roll-out three new pricing plans and begin phasing out our free service. Many of you chose the Ning Platform to build your communities because it’s the easiest to use, has the most
reliable performance and easily scales to hundreds of thousands of members. Our shift to a paid service model will enable us to focus to a greater degree on enhancing the features, performance and services we offer to our paying Network Creators. You’ll immediately see greater control over your network branding, design and member experience. All three plans
offer an incredible value relative to our current premium services offerings.

For Ning Pro and Ning Plus customers, we are excited to deliver a number of new features that give you greater control:
Even better? Once we launch these new packages, we’ll begin to add the features and options that are most important to you, including API access; sign-in with Facebook, Twitter or your own authentication
system (a.k.a. single sign-in); and a way to charge members for joining
your Ning Network.
When we launch the new pricing plans in July, we will add an automated content export option to the manage page of each Ning Network. You will have 30 days after the launch to choose one of the three new
plans or export your content.
Here is a comparative chart for price references purposes but let me ask this simple question ; I f ning is cutting back 40% in employees how in the heck are they going to be able to be efficient and available 24/7 like The Majority of the other plans offered ???? also fragmentation of the price scales and charges will result in More Time Spent collecting from different sources and less time spent helping out customers !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
