With the ever-growing impact of social media and networking across the globe, a group of Ghanaians living in the US has developed a new and exciting platform to connect Ghanaians all over the world. Ghanawall is essentially about Ghanaians building connections and sharing experiences with each other. It’s a social-networking service directed at Ghanaians both at home and abroad that will allow them to build upon common cultural background. Users can sign up for a free account at www.ghanawall.com to connect, update, and share their world with family, friends, loved ones, and even new people.
Ghanawall is designed specifically for Ghanaians. It’s free, it’s easy to use, and every day more and more people are signing up; and the team is continually working on the website to ensure that users can have a bug-free and safe environment to work, play, and connect with. There have been a lot of Ghanaian social networks in the past few years that appear on the scene and quickly fade. However, Ghanawall hopes to differentiate itself as it has developed a long-term strategy for servicing the social-networking needs of Ghanaians, and has a strong development team that is committed to making this service one that Ghanaians regularly use.
According to the developers, Ghanawall isn’t intended to be a competitor with Facebook. “There are certainly some similarities but we don’t see Ghanawall as necessarily opposing Facebook or competing for the same user base. We developed this tool so that we can connect and share with fellow Ghanaians both at home and abroad.”
To ensure security and safety of users the developers have in place initial barriers and security measures for people who are signing up (eg. Captcha, strong password requirements, and email confirmations; establishing a “Report” button that will allow Ghanawall users to report suspicious activity and behavior from users. The Ghanawall team is on top of patrolling irregular behavior from suspicious users.
