I will definitely pass the word along to our product people. I think that the new Activity Feed is pretty focused on allowing people to not just see what is new but also to be able to enter info directly into the feed. So, that's one thing to consider when we think about adding new items. We've already heard some suggestions for more items to include, so maybe we can overhaul the list of what appears at some point.
Here's a request about newsfeeds that comes from one of my Mods:
"Do you think it would also be possible for Ning to add more detail to
each individual newsfeed? For example, if John Doe posted a status
update, and it just says, "John Doe posted a status update", I don't
think people would click on his newsfeed to read it.
If the newsfeed said, "John Doe says: Wow the Reflection Tools really
worked for me! Try it out: here is the link: http://......" I think
there may be more interaction on Ning.
It isn't a huge deal to add this, but I thought it could encourage more
interaction between Art Teachers and Facilitators on Ning..."
