BlackPlanet is here for you to make your mark, expand your connections, and plug into the trending conversations. Here at BlackPlanet, we know that the black experience is as vast as the universe, and that we are in space together! While voyaging through this experience, know that you are seen, heard, and cared for.
We interviewed some of the most brilliant minds in the social media / technology space as well as some of those who have benefitted from social media to get their insight on the role Black people played and continue to play in technology and social media. We will find the through-line that ties most of what we experience now back to BlackPlanet as one of the first social media platforms. This piece will take us on a journey from current day and link the success of social media to BlackPlanet as one of the leaders of social media while in its embryonic stages.
