Comment by PaganJourneys.Net Hosting on September 10, 2013 at 6:32pm is good if you want bland profiles or themes and don't know much about CSS and just accept what you pay for.

A Limit on themes and plugins.

Spruz was good for me for a long while - I still have a site there as I haven't moved over fully to buddypress yet with a vampyre site. lol working on it.

But Spruz is slow, affordable but slow, themes are boring even though very customizable, and still a number one, but it's hard to get it seen by people. It's still listed as a game guild site. is great without it being very community-ish you have to build your community there takes about three months, and even then it's not like buddypress. great themes, very affordable but some plugin app pages are broken thumbnails. Also offer domain solutions.

SocialGO, 14 day trial now also, just kinda blah. - I loved but when they changed their paying plans I couldn't pay with my credit card any longer and they refused to accept it. ;( - Useable ning 2.0 site with the wire like (pligg or drupal) and useable themes from their library and also

However, adult names in email very unprofessional but affordable with a 10.00 no ad's plan.

Recommendations of fellow members seems to be a Facebook, only feature. But read this about the invite system changes and whats on the roadmap (could be a long time, if ever)  I don't think automatic profile fills can happen. That would seem to me to be a security risk. The spammers would love that.

As to Social Go. They have a fine operation, but I don't believe that they provide a mobile reach like Ning. Although many of us have had our differences with Ning, it is doubtful that anybody can provide a better service. The cheapest way is time consuming but you would get a host, install wordpress and then buddy press. Not that glamorous but with a LOT of tweaking, it is an acceptable alternative. All that said, in my opinion Ning or Social Go...all the others either don't do the job or are too costly. Just IMHO.

As the first provider in the world FanSlave allows you to make money with your Facebook page. After the successful registration, you can click through the pages of the FanSlave network. If you like the page, you get FanSlave credits for your efforts, which you can cash out after reaching the minimum payout of €15.

Hi everyone! I am new here and just want to share my opinion about this network. I come here more times than on Ning Creators and recently I made the best investment in my social network (, because I am member of the Premium Ning Tips group. Jen's support is excellent and fast. She even solve issues that are not on the Tips list. I strongly recommend it!

Yes, most people do have a limit income. A lot of my members went to the Mini Plan. Some move on to other sites.

I wouldn't be abe to have my own site if I was to stay here for that. As I am, staying here as a member of sites only.
Comment by Magic Happens on July 29, 2010 at 12:32pm
l figure if you are going to have to pay, then stay with ning. Spruz really is nice but now they want to charge and their free was cut back to what it was when l first sign up.

looks good as now is limiting what the free users can have now.
