Celebrating the essence of Essence MagazineNing Network Spotlight
Traditional printed magazines can seem a little staid in comparison to the immediacy of the Internet, but that doesn’t mean there’s not a place for them. Readers of Essence Magazine have the best of all worlds: A fantastic traditional magazine, information packed Web site, and Essence Community, the magazine’s social network.
The network’s members are discussing all sorts of issues relevant to the modern black woman — fashion, politics, entertainment and more. The topics discussion really do span the spectrum: On one post, members were shocked that some women were bleaching their skin. On another, the topic at hand was the women of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. With less than a month to go until the presidential election, there’s talk of the presidential candidates as well.
