Why we need Live Streaming on Black Junction
With the one year anniversary of Black Junction coming next month, we want to do something epic for the platform and its members. It's time to make Black Junction a viable alternative to the other major Social Media platforms, by bringing Live Streaming Video to the platform.
After a year of building the platform, it's time to take it to the next level. In 2017, video is an integral part of the internet. As we plan on growing Black Junction and giving the Black Community a legitimate alternative to Facebook, live video streaming is a must-have feature. We can't expect Black people to come to our platform in large quantities, if we can't provide such an essential feature.
Another reason Live Streaming Video is so important for us, is the ongoing state of affairs between Law Enforcement and the Black Community. We desperately need a platform that allows us to instantly record, share, and save our interactions to a safe place. Facebook is not the place for this! We should all be aware of the way they handled situations like these in the past; Korryn Gaines is an example. When Korryn tried to use FB Live to record her confrontation with law enforcement, Facebook shut off her feed moments before she was killed.
We need a platform where we can document these interactions in real-time and not worry about them being removed or shut-off.
For the last year, Black Junction has been funded almost completely by its two founders. We have put a lot of money, time, and effort into consistently growing this platform. We plan to continuing doing that, however this project is too big for us to cover on our own. So, we are reaching out for help from our community. We have proven that we are capable of building and running a real social media network. The proof is BlackJunction.com. Now we need your help to take this much needed platform to the next level.
