For those of you who are tired of Facebook, MySpace, Bebo, LinkedIn and all the other social networks out there - try creating your own on Ning.
Instead of sifting through the thousands of new applications, sponsored group pages and random friend requests, why not create your own group with your own criteria?
By signing up on Ning for free, you can set your own terms - create profile pages, set criteria for members and get your network going.
Popular networks include "Ask A Ninja Fans," "INKED," and "Grasshoppers" (a network designed to help others find jobs, life tips, etc).
Try it out. It's easy to use and much less annoying than the larger options.
