Example Site Wednesday: BasicSocial

There aren’t enough Wednesdays in a year for the number of awesome websites we have been looking through and our contests! That’s why once again we had to push our Example Site Wednesday by one day.

Choosing the example site is pretty tough with all of the competition, but this week BasicSocial came out as the winner. BasicSocial is a social network that uses Webs features to power its site. They recently went through a design change. Check it out for yourself:

BasicSocial caught our eye with their redesign because their site is usually bright and playful, but we can definitely stand behind the cause of their redesign. We think it is awesome that they are getting behind a green revolution and becoming more eco-friendly. Going with a darker pallet has helped BasicSocial to create a simple and polished look and feel. Check out some awesome Webs features that they use:

  • Members app allows your visitors to sign up and become active on your site.
  • Mobile app is an easy and automatic way to gain mobility for your site.
  • Forums app allows you to hold discussions on your site with your members.

We always emphasize organized and clean sites, and there is a great reason why. Visitors want to get information quickly, without having to think.

QUICK TIP: The more organized you site is, the more you are encouraging visitors to delve in deeper to explore it.

We think that BasicSocial is doing an awesome job and we want to encourage them to keep up the great work! If you like this site or if you want to see your site in an Example Site post, leave a comment below!

Until next time, happy site building!

    Interesting little website. It’s similar to that website where they make Google “go dark” to save a bit of electricity. Though it is true that dark images on an LCD screen save battery life and use less electricity, I doubt the claims are very substantial. But good web design, nonetheless!

    BTW, I have multiple premium websites that I host on Webs. Here’s a few:

    Personal Blog

    Hogwarts Online

    You guys should consider one of mine for Wednesdays… 🙂

    I’ve checked out alot of the above sites, and most of them are excellent. I’m not claiming to have the best site, but I think my site may be helpful and informational to many people, due to I have spent the last 14 years of my life developing the knowledge I’ve put in to it. This site will be updated frequently, so feel free to visit from time to time.
