Question by nubian89: can you set a successful niche social network biz using ning or social go?
I want to set up a niche social network business, on a shoestring budget is a good idea to set it up with ning or social go?
which one gives more control?
Answer by Scott D
It all depends on how you market your network, and what the niche is you’re marketing to.
Keep in mind that the big social networks (MySpace, Facebook, etc.) are successful because they are open to everyone. The users create groups on those sites and interact with people that have similar interests that way. Let the users do the dirty work for you, but having them tell you what they want.
Just keep in mind that if your niche is Dog Lovers or Car Enthusiasts, you’re automatically eliminating the Cat Lovers and Bike Riders from your subscriber base.
