Announcements from Ning

Ning Partners with Noosphere

Noosphere is happy to announce that it recently coordinated the successful acquisition of Ning Inc assets.  Under the terms of the acquisition PSCP Holdings Limited acquired the business and will operate it under the newly formed entity Ning Interactive Inc.  The Ning brand is an important member of their social discovery division's portfolio of technology assets, and the experienced management of the division will oversee the transition to Ning Interactive Inc.

We are excited about the acquisition and expect to invest in our team, infrastructure, and system upgrades and are committed to improving the overall customer experience.  While the deal was being hammered out behind closed doors, our team here has been working to prioritize a few things we’ll be working on in the immediate future.

  • Price Increase Rollback.  We’re putting all plans to discontinue the Ning Mini and raise Ning Plus and Pro prices on hold for the time being.  Our first and foremost priority is to get back to work improving the platform with results you can see before doing anything about raising your prices.  More information about this update can be found here.
  • Inconsistent Uptime.  Our Status Blog has been getting more of a workout than any of us like these days, and we know our uptime hasn’t been as consistent as it once was.  One of our most important goals is to work to limit downtime and improve uptime.
  • Bug Fixes.  Turnaround time on bug fixes has also slowed in the past few years.  We’ll be working to improve this and have started tracking some of the more visible bugs and their fixes on our Known & Recently Resolved Issues page.
  • New Features.  We know there are a number of features you’ve requested, and we’ve started work on smaller improvements and planning for new features.  You can find more information about our first new release here.

We’re fully aware of the recent network availability issues plaguing some of you and your members and have already begun the infrastructure improvements to resolve this.  We’ll share more information about our upcoming plans and improvements here on Creators under Announcements from Ning, so please stay tuned!

  • Anyone wishing to sell a 2.0 network, please let me know ASAP.

  • Our business model is based entirely on features that 2.0 has, and 3.0 doesn't have.

    If we were required to leave 2.0 it would put us out of business until we could develop an alternative and right now there is nothing like this anywhere

    • Same here.  We use features of Ning 2 that Ning 3 not have.

      • I know!.. I hate 3.0 because it looks amateurish. I see some implying that it offers a more workable form but I find it to be to the opposite.

  • I just wish you still supported 2.0. Everything went downhill when you decided to introduce 3.0.

  • I really dislike the look and feel of 3.0. It looks clumsy, and it navigates just as clumsily.

  • Some people want to stay on their 2.0 platform and it seems unfair to force us to move to 3.0 eventually.

  • Hi folks. I am Cindy and I have had my social network with Ning for about 6 years.  I just wanted to pipe in and check to see if everyone else is having the same problem I am having.  Is it me, or is there no tech support at this time?

    • Thank you for your replies.

      So, it not just me without tech support.

      I am on Ning platform 2.  My problem is our usage.  We are at 99%.  Our group is very small.  We have less than 1000 members.  I deleted half of our groups.  Many of which were picture intensive.  That left us with 25 groups now.  Our usage did not go down.  I deleted discussions.  Most did not have pictures and we are down to 50 discussions now.  Our usage did not go down.  The only way I can reduce the usage is to delete photos.  Well I not want to make members mad by deleting their photos.  There is no way our 1500 photos are taking up 10 gig.  That would mean each photo would have to be at least 6meg in size.  I checked a lot of the photos and could not find one picture that took up 6 meg.  So, I have been trying to get a hold of tech support since October 3rd to see where our usage is coming from.  Is it certain members?  Does anyone have this problem?  I was thinking the usage meter was not working properly.  But working or not working properly, I am afraid the cost for my group will more than double if I go over our limit.

      • I have this problem, too
