I've been looking at setting up a social network for a while but the costs and complexities of coding made it pretty much a pipe dream.

Then i heard about ning and I'm curious what experiences people have had and what downsides there could be to structuring a network with them.

Firstly, who owns the content? If I ever wanted to migrate and create my own code could i bring the content with me or would i be chained to ning forever?

Secondly, i want to integrate all kinds of discounts on products for my members as well as links to my affiliates etc does ning have different terms for sites trying to make a buck?

Any other thoughts, experiences or opinions on ning or other similar services?

I have never heard of this service but are the answers to your questions not included in the small print of their terms and conditions ?
