A key area of social apps that we want to explore with Ning is that of knowledge sharing.

Now we’ve added a new example app for you: Question and Answer.
Good morning from California! I just wanted to let everyone know that we’ve taken Ning down for a little break.
We discovered something we did during maintenance last night has caused error messages in most of the social apps running on the Playground. We’re looking into this now and hope to be back up in the next few hours. Thanks for your patience. We appreciate it.
