A Ning Platform Niche Social Network Sells on Ebay for $4,075 | The Talent Buzz

My kknetwork is much smaller. We're only just a little bit over one hundred. Trying to figure out what kind of themes are interesting and attracting more people. Still a long way to go for 1,200 members.

Earlier this year, Ning announced over 1 million social networks on their platform. How much could one of those with 1,200 members sell for?

Lance Haun, and Laurie Ruettimann just sold HRMToday, a niche social and blog network for the HR community sold last night on ebay for $4,075. The auction received 1,928 hits, and the price jumped $1,500 during the final 10 minutes.

What’s next for the site? We’ll have to wait and see what the buyer has in mind. In the end, the sites future clearly depends on their communication, approach, and strategy. If the community is not engaged fairly quickly, it will be interesting to see their response. As Lance mentioned in a recent blog post, the site added 12 members this past week.

As sites, networks, and blogs continue to merge I would expect we’ll see more of this in the social networking space. Especially with groups on Ning given the communities and functionality of their platform."
