Social networking startup Ning has launched "Your Own Social Network on Ning," a customizable platform that lets users pick and choose elements to add to their hosted social networks. Ning, co-founded by Netscape founder Marc Andreessen, launched in October 2005 with the promise of allowing anyone to create social media apps. With this new release, the company has succeeded, according to GigaOm's Om Malik.
Services include "video aggregation, photo albums, weblogs, forums, sausages and sauerkraut," quips Malik in his review of the new service, noting that the end result is "a 15-minute Social Network."
