If you aren’t already a die hard Google Maps Mania fan, I highly recommend checking it out. It’s got a ton of great links to innovative Google Map mash-ups and tools for creating your own.
I wanted to share a little eBay/Google mash-up we created in a few hours on Ning. While it may not be an entry into eBay Developers Challenge (the deadline is Tuesday, by the way), I think that it shows off a couple of things that make us unique.
A couple people asked us to add an easy reference to the known issues we’re working through right now on the Playground.
Here at Ning, we’ve had the fortune of getting a lot done with a small group of highly productive and extremely talented developers. In the past month, we’ve been approached with a number of great opportunities to create new social web apps for us and others. Because of this demand, we’re looking to add another person to our team.
Our “Run Your Own Ads” Premium Service is free until June. This means that once you take your app premium (free) and sign up for “Run Your Own Ads” (free), you can get an Google Adsense account (free), or a Yahoo! Publisher Network account (free), drop some code into your app (free and easy), and then sit back and watch the big bucks roll in.
One of the many cool apps on Ning built by our own Jonathan Aquino is a Craigslist-style marketplace that anyone can clone and customize for their own group or town.
We’re going to be rolling out a bunch of new features in the coming weeks. Many of these come straight from requests or suggestions from all of you, so please keep ’em coming.
