Free Ning to Disappear

I am sure that most Ning users have heard that the free version of Ning is being discontinued. This means users will either have to upgrade to a paid account or move their content to another site. You can read the Ning announcement here.

Many educators use Ning because they felt it was more secure than Facebook. Education funds are already being cut drastically so money for Ning will be hard, if not impossible, to find.

One solution I found posted is to convert your Ning pages to Spruz, Spruz offers a Ning migration script to make the task simpler. On second thought, who knows how long Spruz will be free - or even available?
