We are experiencing technical difficulties with some sections of the site.
Our tech team is working on this and we expect the issues to be resolved shortly.
We are sorry for any inconvenience this has caused you and we appreciate your patience!
It’s that time again!
Over the last month our development team has been working hard at making some site improvements. We are thrilled that they have been able to complete so many site enhancements!
New Chat New chat is here!
The new chat comes with a fresh new design and easier ways to connect with other members. The names of the chat rooms are the same and you access just by clicking on any of the room links.
The big difference is that the new version is more interactive, stable and has a better design. We think you are going to like it!
Status update is a new cool and fun feature that enables you to let everyone know what you are doing. Tell the world what you are up to and update your status as you are doing new things.
Everyone can see your status on your personal page or friend center and the new status update tab. Your friends can also comment on your status so you can have conversations with them.
If someone is not your friend they can read your status update but they will not be able to comment. Express yourself now by updating your status!

Have you noticed the news bar on the home page? We added this feature to keep you up to date and informed on important stories that are impacting the community. Headlines are drawn from our sister sites that are part of the BlackPlanet Universe including The Urban Daily, News One and Hello Beautiful.
Links will take you to up to the minute stories that will keep you informed of all the top stories. We are also going to use this feature to update you on site changes and system maintenance. When we want to send you an important message the link will be yellow.
Please let us know what you think about the changes. As always, we are listening!
New chat is almost here.
We are upgrading our chat product next week. To take a sneak peak go to the chat landing page and look for the rooms that are listed on the left side of the page. These rooms are using the new version of chat.
On Tuesday, the old rooms are going away and the new, more stable rooms will replace the old ones.
The new chat comes with a fresh new design and easier ways to connect with other members. The names of the chat rooms are the same and you access just by clicking on any of the room links. The big difference is that the new version is more interactive, stable and has a better design.
