Elgg: it’s a community effort
MARCH 29, 2010
This weekend I noticed a tweet from Alec Couros about some issues with the Ning social networking platform. That post is over a year old but from the comments as late as last fall, there seem to be ongoing issues on how Ning treats its customers, users and their data. While Ning may be free, it is not open source, and the company can make changes at will, just like Facebook, Google or Twitter may do. With Ning, Facebook and many others, there is no such export function.
