Social Media Networking Sites
Initially, BlackPlanet was designed as a way for African American professionals to network. Since then, its grown and evolved as a site operating under the principles of Web 2.0. Members can read other members blogs, watch music videos, chat with one another, look for new careers and discuss news. Though BlackPlanet is not restricted to any community, this site is more popular amongst African American. This site helped Obama to connect to nearly 200,000 potential supporters.
