Today social network platfrom Ning announced the launch of Ning Apps and there is a Vancouver connection. While 90 Ning Apps were launched, only a handful were highlighted in their initial marketing push and an app named SocialGiving was one of those lucky few. SocialGiving was created by Vancouver's very own PincGiving and allows for peer-to-peer fundraising initiatives for Ning Network Creators.
“SocialGiving puts the power of giving on Ning Networks; it allows Ning Network Creators to leverage their online cause driven campaigns while Ning Platform participation propels PincGiving to be a global facilitator for online giving,” said Beverley Pomeroy, founder and CEO of PincGiving. “We will continue to build out the app to leverage new and innovative online fundraising methods, and adapt new and existing PincGiving technologies into the app for greater function and bonus features.”
The Ning Platform provides a new way for Pinc's SocialGiving to reach more people as Ning includes more than 1.5 million Ning Networks and 33 million Ning Network members. Rather than being added by individual members, when a Ning Network Creator adds SocialGiving to their Ning Network, by default it’s available to all members automatically, regardless of whether a Ning Network has 100, 1,000 or 1 million members.
Congrats to Founder and CEO Beverly Pomeroy on the huge partnership win.
