It’s an interactive platform where we celebrate, flaunt, query, and discuss our “connectedness” to the motherland. It's the newest thing on online citizen media. You have to be a lofter to understand what i mean :)

The Community is the social networking piece of AfricanLoft. Upload your media (audio, photo, video) or start a discussion in the forum or blog. Call it the African Facebook, and you won't be far from the truth. And if you feel empowered, you may even start a Group; AfricanLoft offers you that capability. It's usefulness lies in its diversification. You can also embed uploaded media, both audio and video in your blogs or websites by 'copy and paste' a simple script. It's that easy!

ChatterBox is a page dedicated to the African and Afrophilic bloggers. It algorithmically groups blog and news feeds into clusters to provide a snapshot of the news-buzz both in the blogosphere and in the mainstream media.
