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.

"I have no idea, but thanks to their policy changes and future road map to nowhere, whoever is left will be on the unemployment line soon enough. Sad for them, but it doesn't take a crystal ball to see where this is headed."

"Nice to meet you. I answered your question, the link at the bottom of my answer is really all you need. They can migrate people now and are looking for some more networks to help them fine tune the process, but it will soon be completely automated."
