Note: As of April 2, the feedly Ning App is temporarily unavailable.

As Network Creator, you can create a Ning Network about a topic you find interesting. And chances are, you probably read a lot of stuff online to stay up-to-date — you read blogs, web magazines, online journals, things like that.

Making real connections through pickup soccer

Spoccer.com is the pickup soccer community, where members get together and make real connections through the world’s most popular sport. And with winter in full effect, indoor soccer is the game of the season. On the Richmond, VA group, members put together an indoor team to compete in their league.

Spoccer makes great use of groups to get locals together.

With new years resolutions to “get in shape” just around the corner, there’s no time like the present to find your own pick-up soccer game.

Sometimes Santa needs a little help spreading the Christmas spirit. That’s where Operation Santa Claus comes in.
