Site Update!

Posted

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!

 

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!

 

We are going mobile!

 

The long awaited mobile product is coming your way: http://www.BlackPlanet.com/mob ile

We are ramping up our Mobile efforts starting with two products:

 

Mobile application

 

BlackPlanet Mobile is an application that you download to your cell phone. Be on Blackplanet.com 24/7 with your mobile phone when you’re away from your computer! All you need is a regular cell phone with Internet access and you’re good to go.

 

You can view and send notes, invites and photos. You can check other members’ profiles and accept invites. You can also read and send comments and bulletins.

 

BlackPlanet Mobile is totally FREE but you may incur charges from your carrier. Please note that BlackPlanet Mobile doesn’t work yet on smart phones including the iPhone, Gphone, Blackberry or Sidekick.  Stay tuned because this will be available soon!

 

Text Alerts

 

Get notified instantaneously when you get new notes and friend invites so you are always in the know and reachable. This service works on all cell phones and is totally FREE! You can manage your settings on your account preferences and choose how many alerts you receive every day.

 

Please note that you may incur some charges from your wireless service provider and you can cancel this service at any time through your service provider.

 

News Bar

 

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!

Thank you BP for taking the time to continue to bring things to the site. I know that with any tool there will be many upgrades to make them better. I can't wait to see what you all have in store.

2 things that I would like to see happen:

1. Faster pages. I know that it's the flash that is slowing things down, but strides need to be made to make the transition that much better.

2. I would like to see BP incorporate something that no other site has and that is not intrusive on members.

why would you upload the mobile site without making accessible to smart phones?! do you know how many people (including myself) have iphones, blackberries, gphones, sidekicks, etc? that eliminates a lot of people from being able to enjoy the site like everyone else... c'mon bp! let's get it together instead of doing things half-ast.

ATTENTION: BLACKPLANET NEED TO BRING BACK THE OLD STANDARD PAGES BECAUSE WITH THE PAGES IT IS SO EASY TO COPY PICTURES ETC. PLUS THE PAGES IS SO UNLIMITED TO DECORATE. THE STUFF SUCKS!!!!!
