You know what they say about music — it soothes the savage beast. And now there’s a Ning App available for Network Creators who want to make music available for their members.
The Ning Developer Challenge — which kicked off at Campus Party 2010 in São Paulo, Brazil — is a worldwide OpenSocial development competition focused on applications devoted to public management, environment and entrepreneurship. The winner in each of these three categories will receive a $3,000 (US dollars) award.
Entries are due by March 19th, 2010. Read more about the challenge here. Good luck!
The power of Ning Apps comes from their ability to add new features and functionality to your Ning Network. Since we don’t offer a built in fundraising tool, we were extra excited when Pincgiving developed a Ning App specifically to help nonprofit and cause related Ning Networks. Beverley Claire Pomeroy, a Business in Vancouver‘s Top 40 Under Forty award and finalist for the Stevie Award for Top Canadian Entrepreneur, heads up Pincgiving and took time to let us know a little bit more about Pincgiving as a company, and updates for the SocialGiving Ning App.
The Ning Apps team is dedicated to giving you new features that are both fun and functional. Below are four new Ning Apps we’ve recently introduced to the Ning Apps directory that we hope you find useful as a Network Creator. To install a Ning App to your Ning Network, click on the title link and select the the “Add to my Network” button.
Note: As of April 2, the feedly Ning App is temporarily unavailable.
As Network Creator, you can create a Ning Network about a topic you find interesting. And chances are, you probably read a lot of stuff online to stay up-to-date — you read blogs, web magazines, online journals, things like that. You could go read every piece of content one website at a time, but there are different web applications that let you read online content in one handy place.
With the holidays upon us, I’d love to suggest a few Ning Apps that can help make the season brighter, more generous and possibly even a little more fun:
Help support those that are less fortunate by donating to registered charities around the world.
Stay connected with family, friends and fellow network members via live video streaming. You can even use your iPhone to do a live broadcast of your New Year’s Eve antics.
