Westford Network on Ning

Everyone’s favorite DIY Web 2.0 site builder, Ning, just relaunched with new features that make setting up your own social networking site easy as pie.

Thanks to Gina’s handy walk-through, I was able to whip up a community site for my own hometown in just about no time at all. The initial features in my almost-instant setup include the ability to add photos (imported from your Flickr account, sent via email or phone, or uploaded from your computer desktop), share videos, start discussions, and basically just connect with your neighbors. I’ve been looking for something like this as a more community-driven add-on to my local placeblog, and this was just the ticket.
