Following on from last week’s chat with the creator of CCHits, we’re taking a look at another very popular Ning App – or rather, a set of Apps. The Utopia! Exhibition is both an art project and a contest in which visitors can submit and rate photographs.
One of the reactions we hear from folks clicking around the new Ningbar is: “Wow – it’s full of people.” Sure, it’s full of people. Ning is all about sharing, communicating, doing stuff together. It’s people that make Ning work, by creating the galaxy of wild and wonderful things that fill it. It’s why we call them social Apps. And it’s why we’ve added the new friends list. We’ve made it available for all Ning Apps to use, so you only have to build it up once.
We knew CCHits was going to be popular, but didn’t think it’d happen quite this fast. Since we announced the user-driven hub gathering the latest and greatest Creative Commons-licensed music – which, by my watch, was a mere two weeks ago – the site’s notched up over 200 inbound links from blogs, including mentions on Boing Boing and Lifehacker.
