Happy New Year, 700,000 Social Networks!

Rate this post

There is no question that 2008 has been good to us here at Ning. We ended the year with exactly 700,000 social networks used by millions of people in their daily lives. That’s a 5x increase in social networks on the Ning Platform in a single year. More interestingly, 50% of these social networks are active, as defined as active usage by members in the past 30 days.

In 2008, we also grew total registered users by 12x, daily page views by 5x and raised enough money to ensure we successfully make it out the other side of a challenging economic environment.

This is not to say that we didn’t make our share of tough decisions in 2008. Understandably, the need to change policies is never popular with everyone and if we could have avoided them, we would have in a heartbeat.

All in all, we are incredibly appreciative of the results we’ve seen and look forward to continuing to make your own social network on Ning even more powerful and chock full of features in 2009.

Happy New Year!

    Thanks for prviding a great platform that is so user friendly and encourages participation on the user end. That has helped The Tennis Social Network grow to almost 17,000 members.

    Best for ’09,

    Thanks for a great job. Happy New Year!

    We have established a great social network for our high school and without you we could not have networked on this level.

    Dear Gina,

    Thanks for your greetings. I also wish you and your team another great year ahead. Ning has been special for me because I have got wonderful friends and a sense of purpose through it. Our social network Human Empwerment started on 1 May 2008 is indeed a cool place and shaping up well. We feel very happy whenever we are here. I am sure many more exciting experiences are awaiting us in the times to come. Lots of love and best wishes again.

    Thanks Gina,
    You guys have done an outstanding job. I’m glad my high school created a social network, which got me to create one for my family.

    Happy “Ninging” Year to you and all of the Ning Staff.
