We’re excited to announce that tonight’s release, which we’ve blogged about here and here, is now live on your social network. Here are the highlights:

More Display Options for Chat

As we mentioned earlier, Chat now has multiple display options. By default, Chat now has its own tab, and you can choose whether to embed it on the Main Page or keep it as a bar at the bottom of your social network on Ning. Here’s how it looks embedded on the Main Page (click on this image to see a larger version):

And here’s how it looks on its own page (click on this image to see a larger version):

Member Photos are Back on Latest Activity

Member photos are back in the Main Page’s Latest Activity feed, and have replaced the icons. By default, Latest Activity on Profile Pages also display member photos.

For the Profile Page, you have the option as the Network Creator to remove people’s photos in the Latest Activity feature. Here’s how it looks with member photos (click on this image to see a larger version):
