Blaqspot……The New Home For Black Social Media
What Is Blaqspot?
It is said that necessity is the mother of invention and if what’s been happening on social media is an indication, this couldn’t be a better season for it. Within the the last month, there has been a definite uptick in censorship on the behemoth social media site called Facebook (some would even call it Fedbook). Many of us have been a part of that community for years but recently, certain actions from this company has caused a lot of us in the Black community to pause or flat out leave. There have been outright banning of pages from known personalities such as Tariq Nasheed, Dr. Boyce Watkins and
Cynthia G. just to name a few. Why? Supposedly because there have been some type of violation of “community standards” when it comes to posting certain material. However, it seems that the same “standards” are not enforced on other pages that literally speak hatred and racism against the very people that are being punished. This is where having our own social media platform is imperative. Blaqspot.com is an answer to that problem………
Our Platform Our Narrative
Darial Clewis is founder and CEO of Blaqspot.com. He created the social media platform not only for the Black community to come and socialize but more importantly a place where commerce and economics
could be developed among one another. Without the development and internal support of Black businesses, we will continue to depend on other people’s systems. When that happens, they can change the rules at any time because they OWN it. Another part of his vision will incorporate news that is centered around our narrative. Part of the issue when it comes to telling our stories is that we have had to depend on someone else’s platform to do it. Blaqspot.com wants to help change that to give us an opportunity to tell our truth.
Membership is free at Blaqspot.com but there is also an opportunity to financially support this platform as it grows. You can support for as low as $5.00 a month or $60.00 a year. There are T-shirts being sold and there is a GoFundMe page to help develop the next phase of this platform. Though the look is similar to Facebook, it’s NOT the Black Facebook. It has an entirely different vision and purpose. As far as growth is concerned, the membership just a month ago was under 100 people but has grown to over 6,000 members within the last week. The word is definitely getting out. Let’s create not only history but more importantly a legacy! Go join now……Click HERE
