The BlackPlanet brand has been a trailblazer since Omar Wasow launched the site in Sept. 2001. For many it became their first online experience and set the standard for “social” engagement for a whole generation. There aren’t many people you can meet that have not heard of the name BlackPlanet. Many people at some point in their lives have had a profile on the site. The brand is synonymous with culturally specific experiences. It has been a platform where many trends have been started and promoted.
BPNEXT let’s you become a trendsetter, promoter, and tastemaker by finding, promoting, and engaging with all the people, places and things you find on the web. Trends are started everyday on the web. Be a trendsetter by finding things on the web and “NEXT’ing” it before anyone else. Be a promoter by growing your followers & promoting items you have “NEXT’ed” from other user’s pages, and put them in front of our followers. Be a tastemaker by building your followers and having the reputation of picking what is hot, what is new, & what’s NEXT!

By creating your own “NEXT Lists” you can combine content to give it your view on what’s hot.
