Social Network Unavailable

Hi folks!

I'm writing this notice to explain that we deactivated our social network.

Ning is asking for payment to keep a social network and as this website has no supporting, I decided to abandon Ning for this period.

When I chose Ning to serve as our social network provider, I couldn't imagine that they act like this after almost 2 years of free service. So, I wrote down a letter to explain our situation and follow their answer:

Hi Gustavo,

All Network Creators much choose a paid plan for their social network. Plans begin at $2.95/month or $19.95/annually. Please note that you'll be able to run your own advertising on your social network. To raise money, you could also ask for donations from your members.

If you decide to purchase a plan, you should see an option to choose a plan when you sign in as well. For step-by-step instructions, please check out this Ning Help Center entry:

For more information about the plans available, you might like to check out this page:

Please let us know if you have any questions.

The real question is: why should I pay for a such free service? The value of $2.95/month is for social networks with less than 150 members. JDEFusion has 158 and counting.

I'm really frustrated with this situation and I'm really sorry about that. My intention is to make a stronger JD Edwards community. 

As we don't have a secondary social network available, the alternative is to use the LinkedIn groups. I already created some, and I'll be working on it during this week. So, if you don't have LinkedIn, I suggest you to create a profile and join in our LinkedIn community!
