Suspends free services

16 Apr, 2010

The social applications service shifts from offering free and paid services to premium-only options. CEO Rosenthal writes:

Our premium Ning networks like Friends or Enemies, Linkin Park, Shred or Die, Pickens Plan, and tens of thousands of others … drive 75 percent of our monthly U.S. traffic, and those network creators need and will pay for many more services and features from us.

Users who choose not to pay for services can migrate their data to other platforms, a feature previously touted by co-founder Andreessen.
