Set custom URLs for your content

Earlier this month, we announced the ability to customize the URL of a Page on your Ning Network. Later today, we’re bringing that same functionality to other types of content, like photos and discussions.

As before, URLs will be automatically based on the title you give to the content you’ve added. But now, Network Creators and administrators will be able to customize the URL to display the text of their choice.

Announcing the Spam Watchlist and other anti-spam tools

Later today, we’ll be releasing the Spam Watchlist — a new tool to help you fight spam.

This feature surfaces a list of people on your Ning Network that might be spammers, based on an algorithm that analyzes their content:

It’s totally up to you to take action (either to suspend for spam or whitelist as not a spammer). All the Spam Watchlist does is let you know who seems fishy. You’ll find it on your Members Moderation page, and you’ll only see a link when there are any members in the list.

Now There’s More to Like!

Since adding the Like Feature to Ning Labs in February, we’ve studied closely how Ning Creators are using it on their social sites. What we’ve found is exciting: 12,000 Ning Creators have already replaced the Favorite and Rate features with the Like Button, and they are seeing great results.

We’re excited to report that later today, we will be taking the Like Feature out of Ning Labs.
