When setting up your profile on the network, it is important to enter your details in the format that Ning needs, to be able to connect with your other social media sites, such as Twitter and Facebook. Every Internet address must have the http:// in it. Some will work without the www. NONE will work without the http://
On this network, do not enter http:// (the http:// is entered automatically) BUT you must enter the full URL including the website name. If your site is a subpage of the main website, you need the domain name as well as your page name or link address. Especially if you are an affiliate of a main domain.
You cannot have any spaces in a URL address. So, make sure you do not put a space at the beginning of entering your link and no spaces in the address or your name, either.
1. Twitter address: Enter the full URL without http:// twitter.com/yourtwittername
For example twitter.com/lesleydewar
3. Facebook address: Enter the full URL without http:// facebook.com/youraccountname
4. Any external Website address: Enter the full URL without http:// google.com
5. Blog (outside network) Enter the full URL without http:// notallpoppies.wordpress.com
The link to your Page on this network is the full URL without the http:// storiesmynanatells.com/profile/ including the name you have used to register here. For example: storiesmynanatells.com/profile/LesleyDewar
Adding a URL to a post or a Tweet:
If you want to be able to connect directly to other social media sites or have friends and visitors connect directly to your blogs and websites, you need to enter the addresses with the full URL including http://, which will, when you use the link on the site, automatically put the http:// into the address. If you are doing a copy/paste of an internet address, DO NOT have the http:// entered twice, or the links will not work.
Sending a Tweet to Twitter
The network has been updated so that it will allow you to use Twitter OAuth to post to Twitter and once you have approved the authorisation, you can post a link to Twitter direct from the network at any time, whether you have logged on to Twitter or not. This authority stands until you revoke it through your Twitter settings, so it is a great move forward, especially for those who do not always log on to Twitter's home page.
Twitter now only accepts links to other sites that utilise Twitter OAuth so that you use your Twitter name and password to log in - but you never reveal those details to the third party application. This increases your security a great deal.
