Anthony Reardon replied to Anastasiia_NING support's discussion Read a new article in the NING blog: make money blogging, with step-by-step guides!
"BTW, I see a lot going on with the updated Ning site and a lot of promotional posts on Facebook and such... Ning Team, do you guys realize that you are not ready for this?
Your articles are problematic. Just the spelling alone suggests whatever you…"

Anthony Reardon replied to Marie Mushing's discussion Registering Guests for Events
"Hi Marie, I checked out your site and like the concept a lot. Nice job. George has some excellent points on this.
Looks to me like you are going ahead with the Google calendaring application as a third party integration via a button link. That's not…"

Anthony Reardon replied to Naveen Jain's discussion Articles vs Forum
"Forums imply a discussion area, blogs imply a member publishing application, and articles imply a more formal publishing of content representative of a site or group's theme.
You might check with JFarrow on the Google applications as he has a lot of…"

Anthony Reardon replied to Poppili's discussion Urgently looking for a designer to improve my Ning website design
"You bet Poppili, I think the Mighty Networks is a new release within this last couple weeks,  so it might address those things. My experience with most platforms is there is really nothing satisfactory anyway - Ning coming closest at points but also…"

Anthony Reardon replied to Poppili's discussion Urgently looking for a designer to improve my Ning website design
"Good points John, I have tried out Mightybell in the past, not the new upgraded app version, but paying attention and - yes, my impression was essentially the same. The leadership, some of the ideas in play, and the predominant user-base are well su…"

Anthony Reardon replied to Bizz ( John )'s discussion Opening My Site ( bizzssite.ning.com ) To Members
"Hi John,
I took a look at your site and can see how it might serve as a useful demo. I am not sure I recognize much of a social concept there - is your site supposed to be a place for Ning enthusiasts to talk code, tricks, and tips, etc?
I noticed y…"

"Hmmm, interesting Poppili, yours is the site for moms? The concept is perfectly fine, but I would have to agree your site looks outdated / and you should not proceed with it as is.
If I were you, I might look into Mighty Networks, the new project fr…"

"Hi Kyryl_Ning_Support!
I would have to agree with JFarrow and Kos, but the issue is far more complex than I think you are able to address. Just like any new Ning Network Creator, it is obvious that you do not understand the tools and purpose of the…"

Anthony Reardon replied to ⚡JFarrow⌁'s discussion What I have Learned about Community Management Part 2
"This is real quality insight from an experienced Ning Network Creator.
I was just reflecting on Part One where you describe the nature of people networking on the basis of common interest subject matter. That's significant.
You expanded on the aspec…"

Anthony Reardon replied to ⚡JFarrow⌁'s discussion What I have Learned about Community Management Part 1
"Certainly Justin ;) Look, it's the essential question of "What is a Social Network?", right, because if you take the sort of industry hype out of it, you know, people upselling society in general in order to sell their software, device, app by sugge…"
