From music mogul to social media entrepreneur, Jermaine Dupri has designed and developed , Global14.com,  an online community where “real networking” and dialogue takes place. With over 500 discussion groups featuring topics ranging from dating to education, music and sex, the site has earned nearly 20,000 subscribers and averages about 100,000 unique visitors per month. I recently got an opportunity to check out the Global 14 Launch Party at the Compound the other weekend. Check out some of the pics from the party and visit www.global14.com for the full virtual experience.
