SIGN UP Vimeo requires a username and password, but it is a free website at which users are able to post their own videos and share them over the web.
Purpose of Vimeo Vimeo was created by filmmakers and video creators who wanted to share their creative work, along with personal moments in their daily life This site allows users to post videos on the site to share with the world wide web
Purpose of Vimeo Users can not only post their videos via internet, but can download them onto a hard drive for offline viewing This site would most likely fall under the category of social networking and collaboration because the users are sharing information and personal creation with others.
Reviews Overall, most of these reviews were all positive and say that vimeo is a great social networking tool for sharing videos over the web. However one reviewer gave a negative review based on the fact that users are not allowed to upload commercial advertisement onto vimeo.
Comments and Feedback After each video there is a discussion board viewers can leave comments on the thoughts of the videos they view You can also get in touch with the creator if you have an account and can message them via their username.
Access When accessing this site I encountered no problems Easy process to register and it’s free
Similar Websites Other sites like Vimeo are YouTube, Miro, and Joost. I feel out of all these sites that Vimeo is the easiest to work with and most efficient site. Unlike YouTube where it can take time for videos to load where as Vimeos videos load immediately. Also sometimes videos on YouTube can not be as what they are described as and can be fake videos.
Educational Use This site could be used educationally if a student is doing a documentary movie they could post it for others to see and get feedback on what people thought of their movie. In business it can be used by workers sharing collaborations of plans they’re projecting to a boss by sending them a video if the boss is in a different location than their office. Finally it can be used at home for your own viewing pleasure. I use Vimeo to upload snowboarding videos of myself to see how my riding is doing and to all hear what others have to say about it.
CREATION The users control everything on the site by uploading their own videos. Users uploading their videos are able to show people all over the web their creations via Vimeo.
