Ning to charge, Facebook lite stops, what next?

So we're trying to work hard to provide up-to-date free technology solutions. It's definitely a challenge with all the technological changes, and as a nonprofit, we want to share the nonprofit perspective since there's not really a community providing this perspective often.

We will edit our Facebook page soon, and we're wondering if there's another lite social networking community for lower bandwidth areas? Since lite.facebook.com is gone, we suggest http://m.facebook.com. Our second thought is going to Twitter as lite social networking, but as some write, learning Twitter can be more complicated depending on the person.

Now, Ning. We don't recall a lite or mobile version for it and anyway, they will start charging soon. So, we're taking a look at http://www.grouply.com, http://grou.ps, and others. So far, Grouply looks okay. If one of the social networks really want to win us over, they will have a m or lite site to accommodate others ;)

Hi CashaD!

Great comment on Facebook privacy issues. We've tweeted about this a lot and updated our Facebook review on iGetcha.org. Recently, FB released news about simplifying their privacy settings to one page by December 2010. Still, orgs like EFF say it's not enough.

The question is, is there a logical alternative to FB that maximizes every nonprofits' reach to the community?... We don't have the answer. So unless a FB alternative with as large userbase arises and it appeals to the nonprofit and NGO community, we will need to be active in monitoring privacy changes. Another option is, we create our own ;)

Cheers,

The iGetcha Team :)

Well, thanks for the post.

Well, thanks for the post. Have you familiar with the latest news about facebook, Pakistan is blocking all the social network site in their country, I think its for privacy reason, other reason? I cant guess. During the last couple of months we've noticed more and a lot more news about Facebook privacy issues. So if you are worried about these concerns just delete Facebook account. Now I'm not siding either way about this controversy, but I do need to say, you chose to sign up for this account, and with that you are able to start deleting your Facebook account also. No one states if you're unfulfilled together with your account you have to keep it, as a matter of fact many people all over America are eliminating their account given that Facebook has neglected to respect their privacy.

For those that didn't see the tweet
