The era of social media is a great tool. It provides news, real-time event updates, entertainment, sports updates even education. The most important aspect is social media unites us. Instagram monitor us, delete our posts, shut us down and even able to lock us out at anytime. We need to be connected at all times to remain updated. Only way for this to happen is to have our own. We bring you the creation of “BLINK” [= black+link]. The photo/video sharing social media app linking Black Culture.

An interactive social networking platform including push notifications, geo-location, groups, direct messaging and other features to keep it competitive and updated.

After initial launch Blink will partner with Black-owned organizations and businesses at all levels, local, regional and national even HBCU’s for advertisements. This marketing form is purposeful at maintaining operational costs while creating and elevating awareness of the Black-owned business or organization. These advertisements are “pushed” to users timeline feeds embedded as normal appearing posts with an esteemed “partner” insignia. These ads will appear as both photo or video.

Blink is the key for  empowering our culture.  We must show unity via economics within our own culture.  Building our own network .  An essential component of advancing our culture.

Blink will use part of its resources and revenue to assist with one selected business startup annually. Assisting with turning a vision into an operational business.  Our “Pro-Black Entrepreneurship Program Team’  work with awarded applicant on forming business plan, connecting with contacts to build business relationships and even financial assistance. Criteria and guidelines to be posted on forthcoming section of website.

Blink Social Media app will be Black Cultures totally independent social networking app. Ground up app coding, independent servers, and no login link to other social media platforms.

Free to download from Apple’s App Store, Android’s Google Play and on Windows smartphones as well. Early 2016

What will the funds be used for?

Update 8/11: Only $7,100 needed

Due of to the lack of success of raising funds for this project on the original campaign, we have decided to take it up a notch and learn app coding ourselves. Building our own app from the ground up. We discovered there is less than 3% of minorities educated in this industry. Furthermore we will have absolute control from infrastructure to customization of Blink.

-Coding ourselves saves a substantial amount of funds needed to complete this app.-

$4500 Servers 

High capacity servers purposeful for providing backend infrastructure stability, ensuring up time, fast transitions, cataloging user data base, maintaining user profiles, providing analytic, version updates, etc.

Having our own servers provides us “complete independence”. We don’t have to use Amazon, Google or any other mobile app host. No one can shut us down!

I have purchased 1 out of 3 servers needed @$2000/+ tax and warranty

$3000 fees and registration costs

Trademarks, licenses, copyrights, registrations, domains, graphics, etc.

$400 was raised on previous campaign.

Offices located on the West Loop of Houston Texas near NRG/Reliant Stadium.
