Remember when Facebook was only starting out? These were the mid-2000s, and online social networking as we know it today was just shaping up. At that time, in 2004, NING came onto the scene as a platform allowing users to build their own customized social networks.
In its early stages, NING was just an open source toolkit for creating custom social applications. Over time, it acquired a graphical user interface and a decent arsenal of inbuilt features for content sharing and online social interaction.
After the remarkable popularity surge between 2005 and 2009, NING started to lose its edge due to frequent management changes and high staff turnover. However, in 2013, the company released a next generation social website builder, NING 3.0. The updated platform got plenty of new features aimed at expanding the software functionality and improving the user experience.
In 2016, the period of internal turmoil for NING was finally over with a new team and management taking the helm. NING started working on further improvements and updates, and began to expand again.
This year, NING has launched its long-anticipated monetization platform, designed to enable users to make money from their content.
