Week4 part 2

Www.stabmag.com and www.whatyouth.com are two websites I check more than two or three times a day. these websites are my go to because of the content they release. It is always fast and very interesting. They both serve basic functions of having the latest news and videos on the homepage and the streaming is smooth. 
WHATYOUTH has a very clean and simple design. They use great pictures and the font is very easy to the eye. The spacing and balance of the website makes it easy to read. Stab is a little more content rich which makes the site feel more cluttered but in a good way. You know you have options to choose from whether your looking for articles or cinema.

What makes me come back to both these sites is their content. They always have good stuff going on. They give me what I want, whether its a good story, video or photos. The only thing that could improve are the annoying newsletter sign up pop ups. Thats just annoying to me but otherwise there is not too much to complain about here. I feel like compared to other sports websites the art and wording is much more artistic for surf based websites.

LinkedIn is very personal in the sense that its buisness oriented and the purpose of the platform is only for that sole purpose. An artistic platform would be something like Tumblr or maybe even Pintrest. Most photographers or graphic designers on Tumblr and Pintrest seem to have a deeper interest into their personal art or work or feature or whatever you want to call it. Although they may be seeking attention and popularity it is more of a one way street on the communication level. 
Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter obviously are big players in the world of business. There are more users, they can target their market and live (real time )information is available depending on the situation. However there are many cases where things are not what they seem to be and pictures and videos can be misleading. LinkedIn wo…

Week 3

In previous years I was never the type to contact a business unless it was a reservation at a restaurants or something on a very light matter. They either pick up or they don’t and thats all. I never have commented or direct messaged a business about my concerns or complaints. I always felt like the message would never get through anyways. I guess there would only be one way to figure that out.
If I had my own business I would try to response to as many comments as possible although. If I could make even one more customers happier and come back then I know I will be doing something right. Criticism is key and tiding up your loose ends could come a long way I believe.

Week 1

I chose the Notable theme because I like the colors and its simplicity. Bold and simple is the way to go. Kind of had to play around with the site to figure it out. Never was too into the whole "blogging" experience so this will be new for me. Not too much to say otherwise!
