As we’ve highlighted on the Ning Blog before, Ning Networks have proven an excellent way to build and foster communities around health topics that are important to you. Passionate leaders have rallied around such topics as diabetes, autism, and numerous other causes to provide support, information and resources through their Ning Networks.
When we recently announced our new pricing plans (which launch July 20th, 2010), we heard from many of you who were concerned about the future of education-focused Ning Networks. Ning Networks have become a valuable complement to many schools and other educational institutions by helping teachers, parents and students supplement class curriculums; allowing educators and administrators to share best practices; and by helping all these groups bring the vitality and vibrancy of their institutions online.
If you enjoy reading, writing, watching, or simply discussing crime fiction, then CrimeSpace is a Ning Network you’ll want to focus your magnifying glass on. Over 2,800 members gather here to share their passion for the crime fiction genre.
CrimeSpace is teeming with content. As you might expect, it’s got a lively section where you can discuss your latest read, but there’s really something for everyone on this network, including a bookstore where you can find the latest crime novels from your favorite authors.
Listening to Network Creators is a big deal for us here at Ning. Your ongoing input on releases, ideas on new features for your members, reporting of bugs and other issues and general constructive feedback helps us continually improve the Ning Platform and drive it forward. Last year we launched Ning Creators, a place to talk through releases before they go live, get immediate, candid feedback and connect with other Network Creators.
