"Black In America" Series Lives On Through Social Network (179014 hits)


There is much conversation about CNN's six-hour "Black In America" report, which addresses the stereotypes and challenges that African American men, women, and families face. Hosted by reporter Soledad O'Brien, its expected to be the network's most watched program ever.

Just recently, the creators behind Connect Platform launched BlackInAmerica.com - the first ever social network for socially-conscious African Americans. The site, which is free to use, is not affiliated with CNN - but it does compliment their "Black In America" special report and tour.

Developed to give socially-conscious African Americans their very own online community, BlackInAmerica.com allows users to post their pictures and profiles, read news and blogs, create and join groups, and most importantly - meet and interact with each other.

The site functions just like any other social network (Myspace, LinkedIn, Facebook, etc), but is specifically targeted to positive and open-minded African Americans who want to see change. It encourages unity, and stimulates positive ideas, dialogue and solutions.

Social networking is the latest boom in the world of technology because of its unique ability to allow users to interact with others as if they were in the same room. Currently, over 300 million people worldwide log into a social network every single day.
