To all MyEnglishClub members:
Congratulations! You have helped make MyEnglishClub one of the most successful social networks running on the Ning platform. (2,000,000+ networks have been built on Ning to date.)
As you may know, MyEnglishClub.com runs on the Ning platform (unlike EnglishClub.com, TEFL.net and EasyEnglish.com which run on our own servers). That means that MyEnglishClub.com runs on Ning servers, using Ning software and design.
As a result, we have limited control over the features we can add to MyEnglishClub, though in my opinion Ning do a great job and are one of the best social media platforms to use, perhaps even the best.
We recently received an email from Ning, which I paraphrase below:
We couldn't help noticing that MyEnglishClub.com is one of the most successful networks on the Ning platform.
If you have time and are willing of course, could you please share some tips or secrets about network running that could help newcomers to build successful networks as well and handle them afterwards?
Our priority is to add new features to the platform. Is there anything we can improve for you on our end?
Although I shall be responding to this email in due course, I asked Ning's permission to share it with MyEnglishClub members, and to ask MyEnglishClub members to comment, specifically with your ideas on:
- what makes MyEnglishClub successful
- what new features you would like to see added
Please share your comments below and I will pass them on to Ning.
