An Update on Network Applications

Hi everyone,

A number of people have asked about when OpenSocial Applications will be available from the main page of social networks instead of only being served off of profile pages.

We are currently going through a private beta period, but soon will make Network Applications available for all Network Creators. I'll follow-up here when there's more information to announce. Stay tuned!

It's certainly no replacement for compelling game play (that is, you still need a good game) but exploiting the capabilities of the social web can help get your game the traction it needs. Incorporating this technology can be time consuming (though it doesn't have to be) but the benefits far outweigh the… Continue

WHAT is NING.......... THINKING?

I just wanted to get to the bottom of this rumor that you may be closing all sites that are adult in nature or "18+". Our site, Phlockers Gone Wild is considered 18 plus, not because it is a porn site ( it is/was first and foremost a site for people who are parrot heads or who live a tropical life style to connect to like minded individuals) because we chose not to censor peoples actions or ban people as a result of their actions we felt it best to make it an adults only site.

Frustration with the apps

Right now none of the apps are working on my network. I have some members asking me why, but I don't know the answer to give them. It is very frustrating. I have noticed that the activity on my network has slowed way down since the apps stopped working. I would like for them to be fixed so my members won't be disapointed anymore with them not working. What can be done??
