There have been big and interesting changes that Ning has recently made in order to better the experience for what must be millions of members of all the communities that are run on their system. RecruitingBlogs.com
of course is one of them.
It’s hard to condense what really I think it all means because I would need a lot of space. I have been focused on this almost exclusively for the last 10 days. I believe though that it will be better for members
of RecruitingBlogs.com and the networks in general who are on Ning.
If you go to Ning.com
and log in with your username and password that you use here, you will see all of the networks that you belong to. It’s right there. You can see all of the content coming from those networks as well. It’s good.
Here is a list of networks
that I belong to. I am not very active in many of them but you can’t be busy everywhere.
The friends you have on RecruitingBlogs.com are connected to you no matter what site on ning you made friends with them on. This is significant because it's now easy to share networks, network with people and promote networks you like to people who you think will appreciate it.
If you are logged into Ning.com and you find a network you like, you can hit the recommend button, a list of your friends come up and you can send a message to them letting them know you think they will like the network. I hope this will make it easier for you to share RecruitingBlogs.com with those who do not yet know about it. we have a lot of content here. I think it's what makes RecruitingBlogs.com unique.
What it means for the network creators of these sites is different and I believe if Ning is successful in delivering their master plan, it will be great for the RecruitingBlogs.com Social Network and great for all of the other networks as well.
So, I want to introduce you all to a number of recruiting networks that are built on Ning. You can also do a search on Ning to find other networks of interest including other recruiting related sites
The networks I visit at least once a day
MagicMethod Phone Sourcing
Fordyce Letter ning site
Future Of Talent
No disrespect to the ones I did not mention, it's just these are the ones I visit the most. I hope that the admins for many recruiting networks out there start pushing other related sites they like and encourage their members to start looking around and doing the same. It's how the blogosphere became healthy and it's how this new medium will become healthy. We all still need respect, it's not just about how big your network is.
One of the things that has come from all of this is that RecruitingBlogs.com and TalentBar will be trying some things together. We have decided that we will carve out a piece of the right hand column of every page on both our sites and this will allow us to deliver messages, ads, anything we thing everyone who belongs to both our networks should know about. Miles has also written about it here
I hope you find some interesting networks as a result of Ning’s new release and I also hope that these networks will start promoting to their members all of the other great recruiting related networks on Ning.
