Recently I have worried a lot about the network search system on my Ning network.
We have technical problems that may be inherent to all social networks, not just our Ning networks. The technology for searching inside networks that have new information added continuously is not very advanced, and this is general, not just at Ning.
So now I have written a blog post trying to explain -- in simple language -- how the search system works on a Ning network, for the benefit of my members.
I have also described a couple of alternatives to using the Ning search (which I like very much, when it works).
I would be happy if other Network Creators can adapt my explanation to their own situation. And I would be happy for any advice on how to improve the explanation I have given.
