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.

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. There were a few technical glitches, but we worked some of those out for the recording and we'll definitely be taking your feedback on things we can improve on for the next webinar. 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").

"The group solution is relatively simple but pasting it in iPad seems to add a crucially unwanted semi colon. :-("

"I pasted it to the actual page I wanted forwarded, a custom page I created. 
While on your created "page", click tthe "Options" link at the top right. Next, toward the bottom you should see a "Custom" box. That is where I pasted George's script. "

"I don't see a 'head' area in my custom code box- just a few scripts I added over time.  Do i put this script just anywhere in there?  At the beginning, or at the end...does it matter?  Thanks, I am clueless about codes."

"You're welcome Scott. :-) On a 2.0 network I don't believe there is a way to add this code for an individual group. Give me a little time and I'll see if I can write a redirect  script script that targets individual pages."

"Yes, no archiving ability for 3.0 is a very serious issue, more so as people's 3.0 networks get older and accumulate more content that folks won't want to lose.  I don't understand how anyone would even put up with it at all, though I'm guessing mos…"
