BlackPeopleMeet.com launches free online magazine to help black singles

(January 13, 2010) One of the most successful online dating site for African-Americans, with nearly one million unique visitors each month, knows a thing or two about bringing its members together in the quest for love -- and now all Black singles can benefit from the latest tips, trends and topics that are unique to them.

BlackPeopleMeet.com, one of the nation's leading online dating site devoted to African-American singles, has launched BlackPeopleMeet.com Magazine, the first free online magazine designed to serve the particular needs of singles within that community.

People Media is the No. 1 provider of targeted online dating communities for attractive singles seeking meaningful relationships. The company operates 27 individual web properties -- including www.BlackPeopleMeet.com and www.SeniorPeopleMeet.com -- reaching nearly 4 million unique users per month. Its portfolio includes six of the Top 50-ranked personals websites, as reported by comScore Media Metrix more than any other company. People Media is based in Hollywood, Calif., and is a unit of Match.com, an operating business of IAC.

BlackPeopleMeet.com Magazine, which is free and requires no membership, is filled with insightful advice and perspectives to help single African-Americans navigate through the exciting and sometimes challenging world of dating, love and relationships.

The magazine is designed to deliver true online dating success stories, thought-provoking polls and feature articles -- to inspire, instruct, amuse and educate readers no matter where they may be in their love lives.

"As the leading niche online dating site for the African-American community, BlackPeopleMeet.com has a deep commitment to this segment of the population, and that includes providing relevant information and support in their quest for love and fulfillment," said Ron Worthy, Executive Director, BlackPeopleMeet.com.

"With the expertise we've developed through our unique position as the foremost dating site for the Black community, we recognized that no one else is creating informative and entertaining content that addresses their specific needs and interests," Worthy added. "We aim to fill that void with BlackPeopleMeet.com Magazine."
