Good Riddance Mode Media! Exciting News About Ning + Cyndx LLC

Announcement from Creators.ning.com (Ning):

Exciting News About Ning + Cyndx LLC

We are pleased to announce that Cyndx LLC entered into an agreement with Mode Media to take over the operations of Ning Inc from Mode Media immediately.  The Ning and Cyndx teams together are bigger, stronger, and better positioned to provide innovative media solutions that will improve our customers social experience.

Our combined organization is committed to maintaining excellence and strong customer relationships (read more...)

In the News:

Mode Media, once a $1 billion valued company, shuts down abruptly ...

What $1 billion? High-flying Mode Media shuts down


I say good riddance to the most destructive force this platform has ever had to endure.  Of course, I feel badly for the Mode Media employees, and the bloggers left without pay. But, let's not forget the disgraceful treatment of the original mighty, powerful, and talented Ning Team. And what about Ning's Customers? It would take me a week to express that story.

Summary: Practically since the day Mode Media purchased Ning, they (Management) have ignored the Ning Customer base. They have made it quite clear - - We don't give a crap about our customers. OMG, it feels good to finally speak the truth. There have been few promises met (if any), very little support, and nothing but a regimented team of detached employees. And, according to my inside sources, those employees were given no choice.

The Future:

I have my fingers crossed that Cyndx will take this bull by the horn, and bring back the creative power of Ning, that we all knew and loved. We can only hope for the best. In my view, just the fact that someone on Ning Creators is speaking like a real person instead of a robot, we're already in better shape. The hostages have been set free! Let's just hope that Cyndx doesn't take the same approach. If they do, I am done. But, I have a good feeling...

Let us know how you feel about these recent events.

I always approach things in a positive manner to begin with (no need to be negative right out of the gate, but that's just me and how I live my life.)  So, I am hopeful...for now. :)

@OMTimes, their site reads quite differently than their LinkedIn page, first time I saw that. Thanks. I'll read more on their site, tomorrow. It could be they are just a temporary holder, and will sell Ning to the right investors. But, still, even if the latter is true, I feel blessed we didn't wake up to nothing, yet. And obviously, that was a very real possibility.

I saw a comment on the thread that scared me a bit. I hope this is not true.

@Omtimes, Same here, just hoping Cyndx takes a more professional and well managed approach.
