Members of the 4000-strong Ning-based network Library 2.0 recently received this message:
“Unless I hear a huge outcry over the next 24 hours, I will shut down this group effective Thursday evening , Feb. 25. Most people trying to join are spammers or just seeing what they can get into. I do not want to transfer the ownership of this group to anyone else. There have only been a few blog posts since the first of the year and hardly any discussions. The groups appear to be moribund as well”.
Is this another indication that the Summer of Social Media Love is a fading memory? See also Will Social Media Eat Itself? Some support for keeping Library 2.0, so maybe it’s just a rather robust way of engaging with the members. However, if the Ning Creator wants to close it down, there’s nothing the members can do.
