I'm not one to want to copy Facebook's efforts, but i just recently started playing with Skype, and this is COOL AS CAN BE. I wonder if Skype will open up an avenue where other websites can integrate it? Could Ning possibly get in on this with Skype?

  • then again better watch what we ask for..sure they can prob get skype..but how much is it going to cost us?
  • Hi Eric,

     

    Its not possible to censor news like this

     

    Its all over the internet--see here http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-14060069

     

    My Question was--How can Ning compete with a free service that offers much better Chat

     

    or to put it differently --How are we Network Creators going to entice our members to pay for something that does not yet offer what Google+ and Facebook offer for free?

     

    I dont think it helps to bury your head in the sand like an ostrich--I think it is a fair question which Ning should answer fairly.

     

    regards

    Mark

    • facebook is going to have its hands full dealing with Google+. been messing with it all day, and frankly, it blows facebook away.
