A nice Ning-alike system for building and hosting social applications, with some good (albeit Flash-based) widget authoring and a good set of pre-built widgets and templates to make your own social site for (ad-supported) free. I still much prefer Ning, but this is a useful and usable alternative that is perhaps a little friendlier and quicker to come to terms with.
