The red color acts as a guideline to lead the users to important links while the white color enables a breathing point for the user’s eyes.

Staff Members: HNHH

Staff Members This is the page where you can see who runs this site which can be found by clicking the “Staff” link that is located at the bottom of the page. What I first noticed is that staff members appear young, with the estimated age of around 20 to their late 30’s. Also, you can tell the staff members are more laid back, and not business orientated based on how their staff pictures are taken and presented in the site. They mostly appear like pictures that have been taken from a phone or some sort of digital camera. The last observation I noticed is that all the staff members are white which is a situational irony because the content of this site is mostly black. Also, the Hip Hop culture surrounds mostly about the black culture with a few other races, so it would seem strange for the members to be mostly...

Top 100 Song List: HNHH

List of Top 100 Songs When clicking the top link above the homepage that says “Top 100,” It led me to this page. When looking at the top ten songs on the list, they seem pretty reasonable given by the credentials of the artists. Artists like Drake, Big Sean, Kanye West, The Weeknd, and Young Thug are all examples of artists who are well known and likely to be on the top ten. Drake’s Controlla User Rating Drake’s These Days User Rating What I noticed though is that even though the site states a particular song is “Very Hot” spelled with 5 T’s, it doesn’t always correlates to the user rating of the songs. So the site’s description can be...

Homepage: HNHH

homepage of hot new hip hop When entering the site HotNewHipHop, it can already be implied that this site offers information that relates to Hip Hop Music. There’s so much information present in first glance, that my eyes had to split the content in smaller sections. The first section are the top links with drop menus. The second section are the latest news to the right side of the page. The third section are the slideshow pictures of events that occurred currently about Hip Hop. The fourth section are the latest posts beside the the slideshow Underneath the slideshow of events, there are lists of featured videos, mix tapes, articles, and upcoming mix tapes. What I noticed with the font is that words with red highlights are attention seeking landmarks. These red words or phrases guides the visitors to songs and articles that the site deem more important as a way to make it easier to navigate if the user didn’t have a main...

Hachman’s Reasons to switch from Google to Bing

Hachman, Mark. “The 4 Reasons I Switched from Google to Bing.” PCWorld. N.p., 22 Sept. 2014. Web. 29 Mar. 2016. Hachman is “PCWorld’s senior editor” who “focuses on Microsoft news and chip technology, among other beats. He has formerly written for PCMag, BYTE, Slashdot, eWEEK, and ReadWrite” ( Hachman bio). Mark Hachman Hachman believed that Bing “improved speed and reliability” and also “added social connections” ( Hachman par. 4). His first reason for switching was due to the fact that Bing increased engagement with the users by implementing “Bing Rewards” (Hachman par. 7). They simply give you credits for searching in Bing’s engine. You can redeem those credits for items like a $5 Amazon gift card for 475 credits. His second reason is that on certain searches, Bing provides “vast, white space on the right side, displaying contextual information about the school, its history, news, and more” (Hachman par. 9). Bing’s “image search adds an extra layer of search filters that Google users must drill down to find” and it also made it easy to “find a licensed photo to illustrate a newsletter” (Hachman par. 12). “Thumbnail images of anything Bing thinks is for adults only are actually blurred out by default” unless the user decides to enable the Adult content switch on ( Hachman par. 15). Bing’s default Adult content block The purpose of this article is to persuade the audience that Bing is a great alternative for Google if you have the similar needs as the author. The intended audience are users who use search engines religiously who needs an efficient way of searching through the web,...
