New Social Network Allows Professional African American Women To Connect Online (61019 hits)
Powered by Connect Platform, BlackWomenConnect.com is a new social network that enables professional Black women to "connect" with each other online. The site, which is free to join, gives African, Caribbean and African American women the ability to create a profile, view other profiles, and interact for business, networking, empowerment, entertainment and more.
Similar to Facebook and LinkedIn, Black Women Connect (BWC) has all the user functionality of a social network and more. The site offers the latest news, blogs, and events that appeal to Black women - and allows them to add their own content. They can create and manage public and private groups, and they can view and apply for the latest job opportunites from actual companies that are hiring.
Research shows that African American women are launching successful businesses at a faster rate than any other demographic. It has also been noted that more Black women than ever are assuming professional careers as leaders and managers at large corporations, and as work-at-home moms. BWC gives all of them the ability to share their resources, and network with others to provide the first global experience of its kind.
Business and careers aren't the only issues that BWC addresses though: Relationships, family, sex, health, and religion are all a part of the platform. This makes the site the most inclusive online social environment for Black women - giving them an interactive forum for everything they need and want to discuss.
