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 problem is that Ning 2 is not mobile friendly. The bulk of my members read on their mobile devices.  2.0's mobile is clunky and has severe limitations.  If it weren't for that, I could live with my 2.0 indefinitely."
