SIGN UP<br />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.<br />
Purpose of Vimeo<br />Vimeo was created by filmmakers and video creators who wanted to share their creative work, along with personal moments in their daily life<br />This site allows users to post videos on the site to share with the world wide web<br />
Purpose of Vimeo<br />Users can not only post their videos via internet, but can download them onto a hard drive for offline viewing<br />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.<br />
Reviews<br />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.<br />
Comments and Feedback<br /> After each video there is a discussion board <br />viewers can leave comments on the thoughts of the videos they view <br />You can also get in touch with the creator if you have an account and can message them via their username.<br />
Access<br />When accessing this site I encountered no problems<br />Easy process to register and it’s free<br />
Similar Websites<br />Other sites like Vimeo are YouTube, Miro, and Joost. <br />I feel out of all these sites that Vimeo is the easiest to work with and most efficient site. <br />Unlike YouTube where it can take time for videos to load where as Vimeos videos load immediately.<br /> Also sometimes videos on YouTube can not be as what they are described as and can be fake videos.<br />
Educational Use<br />This site could be used educationally <br />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. <br />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. <br />Finally it can be used at home for your own viewing pleasure. <br />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.<br />
CREATION<br />The users control everything on the site by uploading their own videos. <br />Users uploading their videos are able to show people all over the web their creations via Vimeo.<br />
