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.

Yeah, close friend of Marc Andreessen, I think I read somewhere. He name is Jason Rosenthal. I had to Google it, lol. It actually comes back with Gina as the CEO - - we wish!

The last CEO I recall is the one we met in California, back in 2010. Can't believe I forgot his name.

Thanks Networking Fool, good to see you. I think all platforms are going to have their issues. But at least with WordPress/BuddyPress you have huge community support, with SocialEngine and phpFox - - great communication with company and support. Ning's total lack of communication and updates, just too much after 2 years of waiting. Truly, I still love designing sites on Ning, really a shame it's all happened the way it has. I try to use several of the platforms, but thinking phpFox will become my flagship platform, as Ning was for so many years.

Best to you,
