Community Connect Inc., the social networking company that specializes in ethnic niches (Migente.com, Asianavenue.com and Blackplanet.com) has announced that it is launching Migente Music, an extension of its Hispanic social networking site.
Migente music will be geared toward fans of Latin music; notable artists such as Enrique Iglesias and Mario Vasquez have already launched profile pages on the network. In order to view the pages, one must first sign up for the free membership to Migente.com.
Migente Music offers artists the ability to see how fans are interacting with the site, which features they are accessing, song plays, etc. Artists may also post an unlimited amount of photos and announcements.
Migente.com was launched in October, 2000, targeting Latinos aged 18-35. The site currently has over two million registered members.
Spokesperson Keda Sekou comments, “What makes Migente.com different from many of the other Hispanic social networking sites is the focus on vital issues from entertainment news to significant cultural reports. Also, it provides an outlet for those who share similar bi-cultural experiences to relate them.”
