Anyone can tell you that even if a web exceeds expectations in functionality if it isn’t visually appealing it is doomed for failure. This is where some of the greatest difficulty in creating a website comes in, making one that is both functional and appealing to the eye can be hard if you don’t an artist on your side. This is the problem I face when creating a website from scratch, my artistic nature is more in the logic and functional side of things and not on the visual end. So when I create a website I generally go with the tried and true method of a simple three column layout.
Social media is all the rage these days, with Facebook being the second most trafficked website in the world currently. And with MySpace and Twitter both in the top 15 websites as well it is easy to see why tapping into these huge media outlets is important for any content published on the web.
