Community Connect Inc. (CCI) announced that presidential candidate Barack Obama has created a member profile on each of the companyâ€™s five sites in an effort to excite and engage potential voters. Since going live on October 5, 2007, the success of the campaign has become evident with Senator Obamaâ€™s profiles garnering over 200,000 friends. In one week, his profile on BlackPlanet.com garnered more friends than his MySpace and Facebook profiles.
Senator Obamaâ€™s campaign approached CCIâ€™s niche social networking communities to facilitate compelling dialogues among passionate constituents. His presence across BlackPlanet.com, MiGente.com, AsianAve.com, GLEE.com and Faithbase.com allows his messages to disseminate and circulate among highly targeted niche groups, and in turn, gives those audiences a voice on the issues that concern them.
Senator Obamaâ€™s profile includes an active question and answer mechanic, regularly updated blogs, behind-the-scenes photos and new videos from the campaign trail. The profile is updated directly by his official campaigners, and represents a thoughtful, in depth look at his policies.
