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.

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").
