The idea –
Social network that serves as a plaza to connect individuals from diverse communities to both share and consume info/news that matters to them and for them to determine most important and new so to self-identify themselves (profiles). Additionally, provide a space for community leaders and ‘journos’ to conduct investigative pieces ignored by mainstream media. Community can connect or see news by ethnicity, issue neighborhood, etc.
