Ning: create your own social network for anything

Better than a blog...better than a wiki...create a social network with Ning.

It is the only online service where you can create, customize, and share your own Social Network for free in seconds.

As the author, you decide who you would like to participate within your network and you can make the network public or private. You can even decide if you want to allow your members to upload pictures or videos to your network (great to us as a discussion tool for images/video for media or film studies.)

Try using it as a collaboration tool with students in your classroom or colleagues, locally or worldwide. Use it with ad hoc groups such as sports teams, or teacher or parent committees.

I am going to give it a go by setting up a private network for my teachers so we will be able to work together as a collective for this school year as we travel the "IT PD" journey.
