As reported today by TechCrunch and on the Ning blog, we are happy to welcome on board Ning, the world’s largest platform for creating custom social websites. Ning has chosen to implement Janrain Engage in direct response to feedback from their members to offer a more streamlined registration and login process. As they put it, “who has the time to create and remember yet another username and password.”
We are really excited to be spreading the magic of Janrain Engage across the thousands of Ning networks. Starting today, Ning Plus and Pro Network Creators will be able to offer social registration and login through Facebook, Google or Yahoo, and enable users to invite their friends on social networks to join a Ning site. Ning is looking at adding additional providers in the future.
A sample of how Janrain Engage looks for social login on a Ning site:
Here is how Ning uses Janrain Engage to let users invite their friends and contacts:
The integration of Janrain Engage into Ning’s social website platform is another example of technology companies turning to Janrain to power their social login, social sharing and invite friends capabilities. Additional technology companies that have integrated Janrain into their social media platforms include KickApps, WetPaint, Tal.ki, Viewpoints, Echo, Get Satisfaction, UserVoice and IdeaScale.
