Ning will cross a sizeable milestone this weekend: 100,000 user created social networks on the platform (including this one). That’s up from just 30,000 in February when they launched a new version of the service. The company is also saying that page views have been growing 40% month over month over the summer.
Ning recently raised a $44 million round of financing after two undisclosed rounds directly from co-founder Marc Andreessen. The company certainly finds itself in the right place at the right time. Everyone wants a social network of their own, and Ning is here to give them one.
The company sure has come a long way since I pronounced them dead in early 2006. Sometimes I like it when I’m wrong.
Update: Andreesseen has just posted about this as well, with a lot of additional forward looking details.
