    In a recent move, the Huffington Post will be taking over the duties of the Black Voices site. The problem is, it wont be BV.s anymore. It seems that Huffington only wanted the increased readership. It thinks it will be able to hold all those who came into the message boards. Yes, they are going to end the message board format. We can expect an influx of new members attempting to check us out

    I think the Facebook model has taken over the discussion board business anyway. Why repost a news story when you can comment on it directly through Facebook? I think twitter based boards are the future though...retweet the story or comment to your followers or to a tagline and everyone can comment directly with no middleman.. No moderators.. No rules..

    I never felt it was black voices anyway this kinda reminds me of Afronet
    I agree facebook and twitter is the future of how people will relate and share
    info.

    But one thing for sure if willing we / us /Destee.com will strive and keep up
    with the latest technology and what's new to enhance our home /community
    and boards, so as time change so will we ........But will be the place beyond info
    but a house to relax in , don't be surprise one day we bring the live T.V view
