Conversation on Twitter with former Mode Media/CEO, Former CEO of Ning

May 18, 2016

For what it's worth, finally "heard" from someone involved with Ning, the former Ning CEO - - and (just found out today, Former of Mode Media/CEO, as well), Samir Arora. It wasn't much, but great to hear he is listening. Does this mean Ning will improve their communication dialogue with Ning Creators? Who knows? But, maybe, just maybe, they will start listening, or at least tell Ning Creators their plans for the future of this platform. Honestly, this is the first time in 2 years I have heard one word from this company, other than support calls, "...working on the issues, updates to come..." AND the announcement: Notice of 2016 Storage Limit and Pricing Plan Changes. I just wanted to share this with you all. If you want to follow on Twitter, click on one of the links, below.

phpFox - Build Your Own Social Community!

I will continue to  design sites on Ning, help maintain existing sites. BUT, I am about to embrace the new version of phpFox! I love what I'm seeing.

This Blog post started out with sharing a very short Twitter response from the former CEO of Ning and Mode Media. It's turned into an active discussion on Ning alternatives. Join the conversation.

That's a canned response. I got the EXACT SAME ANSWER,  word for word.

Look at this!! What the hell??  Why does it say "Our Apologies" on every Ning site tab?

I got an answer to my message to Ning whereby I overused the exclamation point. "Jennifer" answered me back with this (I love the casual salutation):

Hi there,

Thanks for the report! Our on-call team is working on this issue right now and will get things working again as soon as possible. I also just took a look at your network and I'm seeing that it is loading successfully at my end. We'll keep the Ning Status blog ( updated with progress towards resolving this issue. We have also posted an announcement on Creators with more information regarding the recent issues:

My site worked great yesterday. this a.m. I woke up to messages from 2 of my moderators that they can't post photos and when I tried to get into My Network, got this error message: 

We're sorry, we are having an issue with this page. Follow this link to the main page.

The entire right column of my site is I see it appears to be on this site and others, too. What a disaster!

I was going to say something... but nobody is watching and I've said it a million times before.

Yeah, me too. But like you said, probably won't be read, except by someone based in India who can almost read a script.

Left a snarky comment for them.  Doubt they'll read it but hey, I tried! lol
