May need to transfer to Facebook / Ning is planning to start charging for our site

Ning is planning to start charging for this site. Till now it's been free but I'll have to consider it. The very basic one has too few features but enough to put our photos. The video space is limited.

On the other hand Facebook technically owns any picture you put on it which I don't like either.

Any ideas folks?

Move to another blog site? https://www.blogger.com/start. It's free to upload pictures and movies, just not sure if they own stuff we upload to the site.

They said: "New plans and pricing announced! We're focusing 100% on paying Ning Networks and will begin phasing out our free service in July. Get a sneak peek at the upcoming plans."

I think one year is $20 for the cheapest level but I think we will definitely hit the 1GB storage space limit with out videos. I don't know what the total size is now but it's a few hundred MBs. The next level is $200/yr and we get 10MB, but we want free :)

:( That's unfortunate...And yeah, I'm not sure that I like uploading pictures to Facebook either.

I'll try and see if I can find any alternatives...I don't know of any off of the top of my head.

Is there a date when they plan to start charging?
