Introducing Activity Feed Improvements, Including Member Status Updates

Today we're pleased to release a set of improvements to the Activity Feed feature on Ning 3.0 networks. The updated Activity Feed allows members to view older items in the feed, and to view new items that have appeared since they loaded the page. We've expanded the capabilities of Social Feeds so that you can have items automatically added to the Activity Feed via RSS and Twitter. We've added a status feature, so that your members can leave status updates in the feed, and we've added link…

Last week, we hosted our first Migration Demo and Q&A Webinar. Thanks to Juliet for her awesome Demo and to everyone who attended.

Read on for the video and additional resources.

Members need both the motivation to initiate and to overcome their fear of starting a discussion. Their motivation to initiate will be to either learn something (e.g. "Does anyone know how to....?"), to impress others (e.g. "does anyone else think business class travel isn't as great as it used to be?" or to bond with others (e.g. "I'm upset Kelly got fired from the Apprentice").

"Hi Susan. I'd highly recommend OsClass.org. It's easy to install on a server or you can use a service like bitnami.com to install into a cloud in a few minutes."

"Susan, I believe at this time the only sites that will import members and content (from ning 2.0, not 3.0) are BuddyPress and SocialEngine PHP.   You could do a little reading on what others are testing out over on excreators.com .  Good luck to you."
