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.

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").

"Jords,
There are a lot of good Wordpress themes and plugins for jobs and directories, and you can get hosting for as little as $50 a year. If you don't care if people are members of your Ning site, what about considering them and just carrying your…"

"Ron,

I assume many of the more complex apps will be dependant on the stalled Ning v2.0 API for Ning 3.0, which doesn't seem to have been updated on GitHub for over a year. Alarm bells?

Kos replied to Cascia Talbert's discussion How do I prevent Facebook from opening up a pop up window in my ning network?
"No clue however it only pops up if/when someone pushes the FB button.  I visited your site and nothing jumped up.  Haven't seen anyone complain about it.  Curious how it could be popping up for you.  Maybe run a scan and check your pc?"
