Yet Another Ning Site?

In Ning Social Networking Sites Update I wrote about recent changes on Ning social sites and how to cope with them. One suggestion I made was that you could “start your own Ning social network“.

I knew that sooner or later I would build my own Ning social networking site. After all, the ability for anybody to create their own social networking sites is the most noteworthy feature of Ning.

I had already laid the groundwork to launch my own social network. I had many contacts who were involved in social networking whom I could invite to join. I had also received much encouragement from other site owners.

So on Wednesday, October 29, I set up my new site, and as of this writing there are 86 members from 11 countries.

Critical Thinking Outside the Box

My new Ning social network, Critical Thinking Outside the Box, “Larry Brauner’s Business and Social Network for Thinking People”, is intended as a companion site to my Online Social Networking blog.

It’s a networking site where you and I can brand ourselves. The site is of course strongly branded to me. The best way to brand yourself there is for you to start and participate in discussions on the forum.

If you participate and also bring a bunch of new members, I’ll feature you on the site.

You’re Officially Invited

Please join on Critical Thinking Outside the Box, add me as a friend, and leave a comment on my profile mentioning that you came through my blog.

    Hi Larry:

    I think it’s great that you have offered your site to others looking to learn network marketing. Your posts are insightful and full of useful info for those looking to be pointed in the right direction…

    Thank you,

    Hi Danielle,

    The scope of my blog and my social networking site is much broader than network marketing. There are many business and social matters to be explored and understood.

    Thank you for your encouragement.

    Hey, Larry. In the 40 years we have known each other your work ethics have not changed - still working hard to actually earn the respect of others and to earn your own achievements. I have been enjoying discussing site-promoting and blog-promoting ideas with you. Take care,

    You’ve definitely inspired me to look up Ning — I actually hadn’t heard of it before despite my interest in social networking. Great articles in your blog! Lots of useful info…
