Well, we're almost there. On May 4, 2010, Ning is planning to make quite possibly, the biggest announcement made since the inception and implementation of the first Ning Network.
This announcement will potentially impact 1000's upon 1000's, of Ning Networks - - Owners and Members.
The announcement is expected to be the huge finale
to the first announcement: "phasing out free Ning Networks
", and a huge beginning for the new Ning.
The big day is soon approaching. As far as anyone knows, a specific time has not been announced. If a time is reported, I will post it here.So what happens on May 4, 2010?
If Ning CEO Jason Rosenthal keeps his public commitment, and I suspect he will; Ning will announce the future of free Ning Networks, in regards to how they will be "phased out". We are hoping and expecting to hear key points like:
- Premium rates, packages, etc...
- What constitutes a premium network?
- Exactly how long will free networks have to migrate?
- What type of migration path will Ning provide, to free networks who choose to move to another platform?
- And, we also hope to hear some key information on what type of new features Ning has in the Development pipe for the future.
As soon as we hear a peep, we'll send out an announcement.
This discussion is a great place for you to voice: What news do you want to hear?Following the May 4, 2010 announcement, Jen will host a live chat session on JenSocial.
The Chat will start as close to the announcement as possible, and will be held in the Skysa Bar Chat Room (upper right) - - in top Ning Bar area next to "Breaking News". You never know who may show up. ;-)
Here's hoping for a better outcome than anyone has imagined...
Hopefully I'll get to meet you tomorrow in our live chat session, and hear your thoughts after the announcement. I would love to hear from you - - would truly be my honor.
Best to everyone,
Founder of JenSocial (formerly the Ning Directory)
