Ning 2Q 2017 plan!

Most of you have asked us about Product plan for the nearest future. And here it is! 

For the last couple of months we’ve been listening to you very carefully, gathering and analyzing all your feedbacks to make Ning platform a better place for you and your members.

So here is the list of functions we are going to release in Q2.

1) Making Ning 3.0 as functional as Ning 2.0:
- Paid Access. Probably the most expected feature that will be much better and way more functional than the previous version.
- Chats. Basically, they are live now, but in Q2 this option will be upgraded to the next level.
- Audio. The basic feature with basic performance.

2) Completely new features:
- Polls. You will be able to ask different questions, receive immediate feedback from your customers and make research you need in order to evolve your platform.
- Member ranking system. To encourage, motivate and engage your members, as well as develop your community.

3) Some upgrades are coming for both platforms:
- Disk usage is going to be visible for all creators to manage your space and resources.
- Broadcast messages will become more functional, with a bunch of new settings for you and your members.

4) Our brand new redesigns are also coming to push Ning to a new era not only functionally, but visually as well:
- redesign is live now and you can check it out on
- and Ning corporate blog will try out new outfits this quarter too.

5) New migration script. Those who would like to migrate from Ning 2.0 to Ning 3.0 to use more benefits would be able to do that easily.

6) System monitoring. 99,9% of uptime monitoring is now done, which gives us the opportunity to keep everything under control, and provide you with better and better service.

7) Hardware renovation plan, that our tech team is currently working on, is going to be ready by the end of Q2.

      • I think as a suggestion, you need to add soundcloud as most musicians are on that now and its easier on your servers for them to control music from that platform. When they upload it will auto upload on profiles just like the youtube feature you created.

        • Not sure if you are aware Allience but you can already add soundcloud music to your site, for the activity feed you can just add the share link and it will show up. You can also add them into a video page by using the embed code ( it won't accept the link share ) so you could create a new video page instance and call it music or something then members can add soundcloud etc to it. It will still say upload videos etc but with a little custom code magic these could be changed to music.

          I added two instances as an example, 1 in my activity feed and the other just in my video page for now. Although in the video page because of the bug with not getting the thumnbnails for embeds it shows a blank box but in the activity feed it gets the image. Hopefully this bug will be rectified by ning soon.

  • For broadcast messages, please let us see how many are being opened and what they click. Please sooo much.

    • Hi again,

      I'm not sure if it's possible to track such information, but I have created the report to the management anyway.

      When I'll receive the reply I'll inform you here whether this feature will be included in our plans for the future or not.

      Please stay tuned.

      Best wishes,

      Ning Team.

  • Is on Ning. I thought they had moved off?

    • You're right Traddie. You mean the site being showcased on the home page slideshow showcase?  

      Can you tell somehow- maybe someone else can tell better than I, but from a glance at 'page source' it looks to me like maybe that site is now being run on Drupal.  Odd to keep using it in a showcase.

      The Ning "Super Star" page is curious.  Some of those people are long gone from here. The links at top of page either don't function or pull up a form to write to Crystal at Glam. Good luck writing to Glam LOL. I think she is but a distant memory. And longtime superstar member Soaring Eagle's link to his dreadlocks site takes us now to his site being run on Jamroom where it seems pretty active. 

      At least the new Ning people finally got the Glam/Mode out of its FB logo though, and out of our site footers- that's a welcome thing!- since Glam Mode is dead as a doornail.  I do keep bumping into dead Glam links and mentions in odd places though.  Dead Glam... great name for a rock group maybe?  lol

      • Hi there,

        Thanks for bringing our attention to this.

        We have the person who is working under actualizing of the information on creators and on our other social media channels I'll let her know that the info you have mentioned should be actualized.


        Ning Team.
