New time formats now available

Since NING users are scattered across the entire globe, we’ve added an option of switching between the 12-hour and 24-hour time formats.

To switch between the two time formats, go to Social Site Manager > General Settings and select the required option in the Time Format drop-down menu. Depending on your choice, the time of different actions…

Temporary Instagram Integration Workaround

The Future of the Instagram Integration Feature

Hello Creators!   As some of you may know, Instagram is about to roll out a new API. This means that the Instagram functionality that is currently available on NING will soon become unsupported.    Unfortunately, establishing the platform’s compatibility with the new API requires a lot of resources and development time. In addition, we found out that the Instagram integration feature hasn’t been in particular demand among our users.    Considering this, we made a decision to disable the…
