Ning's latest release includes providing Twitter-like status updates on profile pages. (See http://blog.ning.com/2009/09/tonights-release-is-live-9.html and http://blog.ning.com/2009/09/status-feature-coming-soon-to-your-nin...).

These status updates have the potential to be included in the latest activity RSS feed. My question for the group is do you want these included? I'm not sure how many of you rely on the feed to keep up with the activity on the site, but this has the potential to dramatically change the the volume.

Also, are there other things I can do to help you keep up with the activity on the site?

It would be fun to play with. Looking at all my other nings to see about this! Thanks for the heads-up!

Assuming it can always be turned back off I say go for it.
It seems like it's worth a try.

Can you tie these status updates to Twitter?
I don't see why not. I'm curious if Ning would instead concentrate on a mobile platform for the iPhone etc. that could provide richer content entrees.
good idea

Columbia College site redesigned - take a look!

We launched a redesign of our site on July 1. It was more than just a new skin, it was a reorganization of the content.

It also used internal back office terminology that was confusing to prospects.Our charge was to gear the site toward prospective students and to move all content for current students and faculty & staff behind our existing portal.We…See More
