New Features!
5 (100%) 1 vote

On Friday, we released a few new features to Ning Videos, Ning Photos and Ning Group.

If you haven’t created a site on Ning yet, it’s super easy. Where you see “Get Your Own Videos Site!”, “Get Your Own Photos Site!” or “Get Your Own Group Site!” in the upper left hand corner of any site running on Ning, click it and follow the 4-5 steps to set up your own social website or social network.

Ok, now for the new features…

Even More Privacy Controls

Due to the overwhelming success of private Ning Group sites, we’ve now enabled members-only capabilities for Ning Videos and Ning Photos sites. This is in addition to choosing your own privacy settings for individual photos or videos on public sites.

Just choose to make your site public or private when you set it up. You can also decide to moderate your photos or videos before they are posted too. It’s totally up to you.

Even More Customization

Taking another cue from Ning Group, we’ve added “About This Site” modules on the homepages of Ning Videos and Ning Photos, so you can more easily describe your site or paste in custom HTML.

It’s as easy as clicking on the Edit link and either adding straight text or HTML.

Other Enhancements

  • Improved video quality on Ning Videos
  • Ability to upload multiple photos on Ning Group
  • Photo slideshows and embeddables on Ning Group

One More Thing…

Since we’re rolling out updates to these sites every few weeks, we’re making it even easier for you to ensure that you have the latest version.

We’re turning on “One-Click Updates” in the Ningbar this week, so when you see a notification that “new updates are available”, you’re just a click away from the latest and greatest in Ning site improvements.
