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.

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").

"Hi Ceri, the more button is working as expected as it will jump you back to the top if you are not a member of the site. It will show the amount of items that was set for it in the sites & pages, so if it was set to display 20 items it will do so bu…"

"The Comment Wall being hidden is the problem. It is not hidden by the way on Ning 2, plus comments there move the group in the same way as new discussions added on Ning 2. I don't get it, why it is not an option to add it. A lot of activity takes pl…"
