The New Ning: What to Expect Next Week

We’re less than a week away from offering our three new plans. July 20th. That’s next Tuesday. We’ve been tying up loose ends and preparing for what promises to be a very busy first week of the “new” Ning.

To help everyone get prepared, we’ve been blanketing the Creators Network with information about the plans and answering as many questions as possible. We want everyone to feel like they have plenty of time and all the information they need to make the best decision for their members.

Now Live! Content Flagging on Ning Networks

If you have an active Ning Network, you know that moderating the content added to your Ning Network can be an important part of making it a welcoming place. We’re happy to announce a new feature we think Network Creators are going to be very excited about: content flagging. With the new content flagging feature, you don’t have to go it alone when it comes to moderation. You can appoint members to flag — and hide — content that might be inappropriate and then decide for yourself whether questionable content belongs on your Ning Network. The idea is simple: Use the power of crowdsourcing and make the moderation of your Ning Network more efficient for everyone involved.

Ning Network Creators: 10,000 Strong Contest

When we announced the launch of Ning Network Creators in November, we knew we’d be successful. We knew that many thousands of creative and helpful NCs would sign up to share advice and tips with other NCs, but whenever you launch something new, it’s hard to know how quickly it will grow and be adopted. Creators is four months old today, and we’ll soon be welcoming our 10,000th member. We’re delighted that Creators has been so warmly received and useful to everyone who’s joined.

Say It Loud, Say It Proud: We Love Birds

There are a gaggle of Ning Networks devoted to animal conservation. There’s lions and tigers and bears — and just about every other natural wonder you can imagine. It’s nice to see so many Ning Networks coming together to celebrate and support animal-related causes.

One of the newest is WeLoveBirds, a site for bird lovers of every stripe to come together and share their passion for our ornithological friends. Members are encouraged to not only celebrate birds, but also to advocate for ways to protect our fine feathered friends and their habitats.
