Mobile App Update
We have pushed some minor updates to the Android and iOS stores and both are pending review. This update was uploaded yesterday but we had found some issues. Now, those issues have been fixed.

[Update] Added [E] text on an edited blurt
[Update] Auto-scroll up when home icon is clicked

[Fixed] Edit comment issue
[Fixed] Incognito mode issue shows user online when blurt is reblurted
[Fixed] Quick blurt edited issue
[Fixed] Emoji line height issue that creates extra vertical space in blurt text
[Fixed] Reblurt username bypasses the border
[Fixed] Hashtags and mentions not showing on same horizontal line as normal blurt text
[Fixed] Adding a vertical space before a hashtag or mention
[Fixed] Images in a text-only blurt still shows on timeline when reblurted
[Fixed] Error when adding credit card in settings
***Android App Update
We have pushed another update for both Android and iOS..unfortunately, we have found some issues, after pushing to the stores.
Android new version is currently live in the Play Store...iOS is not.
***DO NOT*** update to the new app version in the Play Store until we fix the issues and re-upload, as there will be no way to revert to the prior version.
Since we couldn't get many of our cousins to take the extra step to test Blocks Beta and provide feedback and suggestions, we can't just wait and hope to see it happen...so we're going to bring Blocks Beta here (in hopes the system don't crash)..on the production app, so cousins can test and provide the feedback and suggestions we have been asking for.
Remember, this is a community and in order for a community to thrive, we have to participate more in things that can grow this community...especially when the support is heavily needed, for an independent platform as us, where it is super difficult to get the support needed because we are Blackcentric.
Shots fired! ooowee lol It's on our beta app for testing..we'll bring it to live soon so you can use and test
@Wise0wl was bringing it back...2 years ago...what's new in 2023?
Who here remembers Black people STARTED Social Media with "Black Planet"? All were welcome but if you started drama and you were an "other" people would call you out. That led the way for "MySpace" I direct BITE of BP where "others" would feel more. comfortable. Then came "FaceBook" which was originally for college students. It differed from MS by asking people to use real names so people could track you down. Then came Twitter to put a limit on some of them long ass post. Then instagram cause who reads anymore anyway. I could go on but you get the point. #ORIGINATORS
You all may have noticed that your followers count is decreasing. No reason to be alarmed.
We had previously sent out emails regarding removal of inactive accounts..while we are still in the process of doing this, we have started with suspended accounts who have violated community guidelines.
We will be extending the grace period for regular accounts who have been inactive 1+ years.
More updates coming soon!
Let's see what is going to be done about this...a page that is dedicated to spreading hateful vile content towards Black people and the community.
These are the traumas that we endure when using platforms that cultivate this type of content with no repercussions for the culprits or their pages. We continue to make these platforms wealthy with little regard for our brothers and sisters.
Look at the following...and there are million more pages just like this.
There should be a zero tolerance for these content.
