What kinds of users want to use ning? What kinds of services or features are provided within ning? What kinds of developers should know the platform ning?

Recently I am reading a mini -blog post on facebook that is about the social privacy and I have an idea that some people like the community that is unique for them in a way. Ning can give us the needs to create a reliable, collaboration, attractive and some applications which can be utilized for social networking and others business corporative methods. So I think that it is a flexible platfo rm to customize and it can be developed to your desired networks . Schools, banks, companies, organizations and others networks using internet media can create and work for their specific needs using Ning panel skillfully. I created a ning network for my own university and I learned how to work with ning. Some of the features can be made as your own ways some as the given configuration steps including Third Party Integration Social Media. Ya! got lost one thing. There are a lot of option s for privacy in ning. You can even block viewing you profile from non-buddy user. 

Ning can give several good services to its users and creators.

I will prompt how to use them. Each one contains elements to be a perfect feature and one can know how they are related by just using a ning network even with an ordinary user account not network creator. When working on ning we have to know that every single element cannot be customized. Some of the sites functions would be default but still suite with the need and the de sign UI of the modern web standard. So we don¶t need to for ce to make or to customize them.

I would like to discuss about the ning¶s main services each a module and then make happy learning.
