Tired of sending messages to your YM groups.. Don’t like facebook or myspace?
A solution was invented for this problem: some good guys from california invented the NING platform.
Ning allows you to create your own social networks and join and participate in other networks. There are different features available that allow you to read news or learn about related events, join groups, read and comment on blog entries, view photos and videos, and other activities as set up by the network creator. RSS feeds let users subscribe to updates from specific parts of the social network.
In one word.. you can do whatever you like..

Send me an invite.. to your network 🙂

 

why social networking is not the best option!! August 10, 2009

everyone knows that Twitter faced a “denial-of-service” attack last Thursday.. more exactly.. computers infected with malware floded twitter’s servers.. and they crashed.. (why don’t people learn their lesson and install an antivirus!!??!!!)
what were the consequences? well.. everyone that lives their life depending on social networking felt lost.. lost in translation.. (do you remember that movie?)
do you think that’s good? i don’t! one should not depend on so untouchable things..
that’s why i only use my facebook account from time to time.. and i rarely post on twitter 😉
what happened to the old fashion “writing a letter”? i should answer that myself.. it takes to much time!!
and of course.. we live our lives on fast-forward! why? because if we do otherwise.. we’ll be lost too..
stupid paradox!
