In just a few minutes, you can create a free website where your group can share pictures, comments, blogs, files and much, much more.

But don’t be put off by the cheesy intro or the ready made templates for families, school, and sports teams. I selected to use a group template and under the hood found a very easy to use and functional rich site. It did only take a few minutes to get things set up and the facilities were well designed.

With Nexo you can create a website that

  • contains a calendar, resources folder, forum, pictures/video
  • has member/user privileges that the site owner can easily administer
  • can easily import data from elsewhere including other sites, files, weblinks, flickr, delicious, youtube, google/yahoo
  • communicate with members via email to send invites or links to members of the whole group

Having been chatting with some friends earlier in the evening about creating a new group, I could see this being a contender to help administer the groups activities.
