A Ning is a social network, an online place for people to have discussions, write blogs, upload photos and video, and make new connections, but unlike more famous social networks like Facebook or MySpace, a Ning can be walled off, so that only members of a particular community have access to that community.
So you can browse Ning either as a user, someone keen to start using these tools and wanting to make the most of the services they offer' or as a developer, someone looking for a great site to "clone".
