The following tips are available for email users. We are in the process of integrating more services using If you would like to sign up for a new e-mail account, please sign up here.

Five things you may not know you can do with attachments:

We know that if you're using Google Docs then you're familiar with the ease of no longer having to send attachments back and forth. However, many
still use attachments daily, so we've put together a few tips on how to
get the most out of Gmail and attachments:

1. Drag attachments in and out
In: Simply drag files from your desktop right into the message you're composing and they'll upload from there. (Make sure
you're using Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox 3.6 or Safari 5 for this to
Out: Simply drag the icon for a Gmail attachment to your
desktop. (Note that dragging attachments out is only supported in Google
Chrome for now.)

2. Select multiple attachments
Attaching multiple files one by one is no fun. Instead, just
multi-select the files you want to attach by holding down the Ctrl key
(or Command on a Mac) and clicking on each file you want to attach.
Holding down the shift key will select a continuous list of files.

3. Never forget an attachment again

Gmail looks for phrases in your email that suggest you meant to attach a file
(things like "I've attached" or "see attachment") and warns you if it
looks like you forgot to do so. Every day, this saves many people the
embarrassment of having to send a follow up email with the file actually

4. View attachments online
When you receive an attachment, sometimes you just want to view it and
there's no need to download or save it to your desktop. The Google Docs
viewer allows you to view .pdf, .ppt, .tiff, .doc and .docx files in
your browser. Just click the 'View' link at the bottom of the message.

5. Find that long-lost attachment
If you'
re looking for an attachment someone has sent to you, Gmail's advanced search operators can help you find what you're looking for quickly and accurately e.g. 'has:attachment pdf'.

We’re happy to announce a new way for you to stay on top of activity on Zomi Social Network. Seesmic Desktop 2 has just been released. If you’re not familiar with Seesmic, it lets you access all of your social networking services in one place. What’s great about it (in addition to the fact that it’s free) is that it lets you monitor activity and post updates on multiple social networks at the same time, including Zomi Social Network.

• It’s cross-platform: Works on both PCs and Macs.

• Tracks the latest activity: Check out the latest Zomi Social Network photos, blog posts, members, and comments, alongside what’s happening on other popular services.

• Post once, deliver to many: Monitor activity on Zomi Social Network, along with Twitter, Facebook, and others. Post status updates to all of them at once with one click.

It’s easy to set up. Just install Seesmic Desktop and add the Ning plug-in. When prompted, enter your Zomi Social Network sign-in information. You’re ready to post.

Ning Platform a ding in Chat Setting pen facebook a tawh akibang pian ding in hong upgrade ding cih kiza hi.

If you've looked at the Ning product roadmap recently, you've noticed that some Chat improvements are on the way. We've started to work on Chat, and wanted to share what we have in mind and get Network Creators an early chance to share their feedback.

The biggest changes we have planned are:

  • Redesigning Chat in HTML and Javascript, instead of today's Flash-based chat. It will work on iPad, can be customized via CSS and will be translated in the language editor.
  • Redesigning Chat into separate "panes," whereas today's chat a single "pane". New private conversations appear as tabs within the Chat pane, instead of appearing as new panes.

Here is today's Flash-based chat:

And here's what Chat might look like (click on the image to see it bigger):

So, unlike today's chat, this new Chat format would mean that:

  • When someone starts a 1:1 conversation, the chat would instantly pop up (and pop open), so it would be very hard to miss.
  • You can talk in 1:1 conversations and in the main chat room at the same time (not possible without changing tabs today)

There's a lot to process in looking at this new design, and there have been a ton of discussions on Creators about Chat. We want your feedback, though, about the overall design and functionality.

A few of big questions have come up that we want to pose to you:

  • Do you think this new overall design works better than today's tabbed chat?
  • Would you be disappointed if this redesigned chat just existed in your network's footer, not in a module or full page as it does today?
  • Are you satisfied with the general size of the main chat window? Do you think you'd still need to pop it out in case the discussion becomes so active you need more screen real estate?
  • How important is being able to pop out the main chat room, or 1:1 conversations?
  • How do you feel about the sounds in chat? So long as users can turn sounds off, should a sound be played every time a new message is posted? Even when chat is minimized?

We'd love your feedback on these issues, as we start to develop chat. Down the road, we'll get into more specific feature additions, but for now, I'd like to keep this discussion focused on the big design/behavior issues I've raised above. ah maiam ciang sum i neih beh ciang in Add on program a thak pawl khat hong tung thak hi

Google Apps administrators can manually turn on Google+ for their organization. Once Google+ is turned on, users will need to sign up at to get started. For customers who use Google Apps for Business or the free version of Google Apps and who have chosen to automatically enable new services, Google+ will automatically become available to all of your users over the next several days.

Editions included: 
Google Apps, Google Apps for Business, Government and Education*

Languages included: 
Control Panel: All languages supported by the control panel
Google+: All languages supported by Google+

How to access what's new: 
Follow these steps to roll out Google+ to your users.

Note: Google+ requires Picasa Web Albums for photo sharing and Google Talk for chat, so if these services are not enabled then Google+ will not automatically become available, even if your domain has chosen to automatically enable new services. The option to automatically enable new services is controlled in the Domain settings tab of the administrator control panel. More information about using Google+ with Google Apps is available in the Help Center.

*Education editions only: Google+ is available only for higher education institutions that are existing Google Apps for Education customers. If you don't see the Google+ service in your control panel (as described above), you'll need toapply for the service to have it added to your control panel.

I wanted to highlight two small, but important changes that we've added to the Ning platform this morning. Both changes make the experience of viewing photos on a Ning Network a much better experience, and more consistent with other social-networking and photo-sharing platforms.


Easier Navigation

Clicking on a photo now takes you to the next photo. So instead of forcing users to find the "Next" button and click on it, they can just click on the photo they're currently looking at to bring up the next photo.

Clicking on a photo used to open a new window containing the full-size version of the photo. Since most sites take users to the next photo when they click on a photo, your Ning Network will now behave much more like your members expect it to, and should increase page views.


No-refresh navigation

Today, when your members click to see the previous or next photo, the entire page refreshes to show the new photo. Now, you have the option of enabling "Dynamic Photo Viewing," which allows your members to view the new photo without refreshing the page. Instead, the photo, title and meta information will change right on the page, without refreshing.

While this should make for a much better user experience, it has the potential to affect your Ning Network's page views. Therefore, this feature is off by default, and can be enabled by going to your dashboard, and then accessing the "Controls" page in the "Content" section (/main/content/controls). Click the box next to "Enable dynamic photo viewing."


We hope you enjoy these new features, and we'd love to hear your feedback!
