We’ve had quite the year at Ning! Most notably, Glam Media, a premium digital brand advertising and platform company, acquired us in September. On the product front, we’ve introduced add-on features, built-in support for Google+, Twitter, Ustream and Aviary, paid access, the Ning Design Studio, and launched Mogwee, a new mobile social communication service. We’re continuing this momentum into the rest of 2011.
In November, Ning will be at a number of conferences and speaking engagements, and we’d love to see you there! We remain laser-focused on offering the #1 platform for creating custom and powerful social communities, currently spanning some 100,000 customers ranging from brands, marketers, organizations, non-profits, educators, and interest groups. We’re looking forward to sharing what we’ve learned in building Ning along the way, and next steps for the product and company. We’ll be speaking at the following events:
