I took care to carefully see what Ning offers and what our site needs. It is a professional observation made with respect.
Ning is one step away from offering what has never been seen before. But it seems to focus on things that do not change the experience of the members with our site. Here it is.
Help us engage our users. this is the most important at all.
Create a reward system for member actions. Earn points by sharing, commenting like etc
Be withe label again. Do not force the Ning logo on our site. So we can sell ads and look more professional for the eyes of our sponsors and our members. It's important to looks unique.
Move the add photo button to the right place. Today the way 90% of people can not find it.
Integrate with Facebook like sharing, enjoying, commenting and all features. ( It's few years that does not not working )
Create a layout that are beautiful. The sites offered by Ning are the ugliest on the market.
Do not limit plans with bandwidth or space for uploads. It makes it seem wrong to grow up. 90% of the companies today offer unlimited space. The world changed. We grow, Ning Grow
Do what you say you will, so that helps we trust Ning again.
These are truly important points. I do not think they should invest time in things like analytics because google Analytics works perfectly. Do not waste time on what already exists or will not change the members' experience.
PS: The photo I send in attached, shows one thing that you offer and do not deliver
