Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) April 16, 2010
Leading social groupware platform and do-it-yourself social networking provider, GROU.PS, today announced a new group, which will welcome millions of networks that escape from Ning due to the recently-announced death-of-free-networks policy of Ning.
"Today's decision of Ning has obviously frustrated many network creators who put a great amount of effort and time into growing their communities on Ning. Network creators are very important for us and we warmly welcome them to our platform for continued free service. Users won't notice any change and they will even be delighted with the innovative features that our platform proposes to them; such as ActivityRank, Social Beans and Elastic Modules." said Emre Sokullu, the founder and chief executive officer of the Palo Alto based company.
The assistance group can be reached from http://grou.ps/ningexodus. The group aims to connect GROU.PS community managers with dissatisfied Ning network creators who have decided to switch to the GROU.PS platform. The group consists of sections such as Forums, Video Tutorials and How-tos (in wiki format)
