Social Media Monetization – Ning introduces paid access feature for network owners.
Is 500 paying members per year for a niche social network realistic?
Would ANYBODY pay for social media access?

Ja, das denke ich auch. Für "allgemeine" soziale Netzwerke wird wohl keiner was zahlen wollen. Bei einem exklusiven Nieschennetzwerk, mit speziellem Content, (den man nur dort findet), moderierten Mitgliedern (keine Spammer, Lurker, alle mit Profilbild) und aktivem, spannendem Community Management, sieht's anders aus. DANN, glaube ich auch, werden Leute bereit sein was zu zahlen – bis die Konkurrenz was ähnliches "für lau" anbietet …
 
+Alexander Hetzel I agree. I love the idea of a really exclusive community where people only get in when invited and STILL have to pay.

The great thing with Ning is that EVERYTHING comes out of the box. It's REALLY easy to set up (nothing to set up) and comfortable to moderate. I'm using it for some clients for years. This new monetization feature is great and gives new options. FINALLY.

Ok – you can do similar things with BuddyPress and payment plug-ins. But this is not as easy as with Ning. Once a BuddyPress social network is running – well – then it's comparable.
