FORUM

Network Chat

A couple of years ago (maybe more than that) Ning had a download called seesmic activity. I know this is no longer around, but I was thinking of network chat. It would be nice if we had a messenger IM similar to facebook im where we could see friends and such online in our networks, and other ning sites we are apart of where friends would show up sorta like:

One site:

friend one

Friend two

Another site:

friend one

Friend two

Friend three

Another site:

Friend one

Friend two 

 

and so on, you could subscribe  to updates or notifs when these people come online similar to when you subscribe to a forum or article posting to be notified when these friends are online and could talk to them regardless of what network you were on at the time.

It could be good for user engagement, participation and encouragement of members when they are online to use your network. Also could help with user sales if a person had a store on ning and a potential buyer was on their website looking at merchandise.

  • Also if it was a cost thing, you could use or offer it as a download for others or even host it as a module, like with the open.ning.com plans.

    I am not sure how it could be built, API isn't really my thing, but its a cool idea.

    • Hi Ana!

      You are right, this is a very important and useful part of the chat functionality. It was present in the old version of the chat but unfortunately no longer available. We will eventually rework the chat functionality and we will keep in mind this point for sure. 

      Best regards,

      The NING Team

      • Sounds good.
