ATLANTA, GA (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Six Degrees Black LLC today announced the launch of, a “Black” oriented social networking website based on the “Six Degrees of Separation” theory – that anyone on earth can be connected to anyone else through a chain of people that includes no more than five links.

“People have better luck finding jobs, dates or business contacts among friends, and among friends of their friends,” said Tharwat Abdul-Malik, Founder and President of Six Degrees Black LLC. “The connections are already present. makes them visible and accessible.”

After joining, members can create profiles about themselves which contain biographical information, photos, hobbies, interests, education and professional background. Once they have completed their profile, members can view and network with the profiles of their friend’s friends. As they connect with more and more people, their own network expands exponentially.

By adding just a few friends to their network, members can end up connected to thousands of other people. These networks can then be used for fun, for dating, for connecting specific groups, for arranging activities, and also for serious business networking.

Other member connection services on include: classified ads, clubs, private messages, instant messenger, photo sharing, blogs, and live events. Registration is quick and easy, and membership is free.

“Our mission is to unify Black people across the globe into a single family by allowing them to strengthen and grow their professional, business and social networks,” said Abdul-Malik, who started with the idea of giving something back to the global community. “We hope that by exposing the links between all of us, Black individuals will see themselves as a people, as a collective, and not just as individuals; and feel encouraged to share our resources and to help and support each other.”
