Jessica On Video Ads, Search Engines, Blogs And Websites
Chris Winfield asked some questions last week and I asked my class for some help with some of the answers.
1) How do you feel about video ads on YouTube (as they are now like Boost Mobile)?
I don’t really care for ads, they seem out of place but they aren’t as bad as those ads that float around the screen or cover up what I try to read. It’s more like watching ads on TV.
1a) How would you feel about having to watch a quick ad before the video you wanted to watch?
If the ad made sense, and I really wanted to see the video it would be okay but ads for growing hair on a System Of A Down video wouldn’t be.
2) Which search engine do you use?
I use Google now but last year my homepage was Yahoo and I used it. I asked the people in my class and here are the answers.
2a) Do you click on the ads?
3) Do you read blogs (other than this one ;)?
Yes, I read band blogs and fan blogs and my friend’s blogs and for Civics I have to read political blogs.
3a) How much influence does a blog have over what you might purchase?
It depends on what blog it is. If my friends are blogging about a new CD then I might buy it but I have to know the person blogging. I don’t like blogs that are all about trying to sell things.
4) What is the coolest website right now in your opinion?
I spend more time on Pogo than any other site but I asked the class again to get more answers.
World of Warcraft 6
My teacher wrote at the bottom of the poll:
