A Little Company News…Ning News
We are passionate about offering you the absolute best platform for creating your own social network for anything.
One key aspect of creating a fantastic service is growing it – adding features as quickly as possible, improving the features already there, and expanding all the behind-the-scenes operations a service needs to deliver itself as more and more people discover it.
We normally like to keep company mechanics a behind-the-scenes affair. The only thing that matters is your experience with the service. It should just work and be awesome. Nothing else is important. Except for perhaps making sure we’re going to be delivering this service for the long haul.
Over the past four months, we’ve seen an amazing response to Your Own Social Network for Anything. As of today, there are 73,650 social networks on Ning. As anyone on Network Creators can attest, we also have a whole host of new features we can’t wait to get out the door.
The first step to continuing improving and growing Ning is to be here. We need to be around for us to deliver everything we want to deliver.
To this end, we closed our first outside investment in Ning. We raised $44M. The investment was led by Legg Mason Investments with a number of other great investors participating. We will use this investment to add new features as quickly as possible, improve features we have, and expand all the behind-the-scenes operations a service needs to deliver itself as more and more people discover it. Yes, the second paragraph was a set up 🙂
