Ning.com is going fully commercial by mid July 2010 and they no longer support free accounts. Most account owners are aware of this unfortunate change but the majority wouldn’t know what to do.
If you’re not willing to opt for a paid service on Ning.com, the question is how and where to move your networking site and members to?
I was in the same predicament a few weeks ago until I stumbled upon Grouply. As far as I am aware there’s no other platform that allow the easy migration from Ning.com.
For now the only snag is that Grouply doesn’t import blog posts. Other contents such as member profiles and images work beautifully.
First, create an account at www.Grouply.com
Then from Manage > Management Menu, select “Migrate From Ning”.
From there on, just follow the steps and you should have your Ning’s members and images copied to Grouply.
There’s also an option to do bulk notification to all your Ning’s members about the migration.
