Classmates.com is a social media website that allows the user to locate and contact all of those people whose names and faces we may not remember from old high school yearbook archives. It is a great site to reconnect with old friends and school chums from kindergarten to grammar school all the way through to High School and College. More importantly, with the ability to share current as well as past photos, we can check out who has receding hair lines or expanded midsections.
Vimeo is a video-sharing service that is bustling with creativity. They make it easy to find high quality videos. The name “Vimeo” is a play on the word “video”. The “de” is replaced with “me” since the site dedicates itself to user-made video. It is a hub of creativity and Time calls it “the indie darling to YouTube”. Typical videos are high quality, short, artsy, and creative with a strong emphasis on good photography. At Vimeo, you can find the best creative short films in HD.
TheCHIVE’s slogan is “probably the best site in the world” so naturally we had to investigate. It is one of the best photo-entertainment websites that gained attention when they released a series of internet hoaxes that were reported as true stories by mainstream media outlets. These hoaxes ultimately led to us discovering theCHIVE, the home for pictures of some of the hottest girls on the internet.
8tracks describes itself as “music rediscovered”. Critics agree. The free social cloud music service has been proudly featured on Time, Wired, and Business Insider. Interestingly enough, none of them say anything about the service that someone who used the service would say about it though. But anyway, their service is simple, popular, and does a good job at playing good music (that’s the point of a music service, right?). For this reason, we crown them as the best website for cloud playlists.
