According to the Alleyinsider.com, popular social network Blackplanet is up for sell. With the recent $850 buy out by AOL for Bebo.com, Blackplanet is next in line to get brought up. Many of us from the old school internet days hate Blackplanet. It’s become pretty much an urban dating spot.
So who do you think should buy up Blackplanet? I would pick Viacom/BET. BET is in desperate need of a bigger online web presence and Blackplanet would be a good fit. They would be able to merge the music content with the audience already visiting Blackplanet now and they could make something to rival MySpace. They would need to develop out a lot more of the customization features but it could be done.
