Social Networking Websites and Web 2.0 Applications

In the last few years, social networking has become a main facet of the Internet. In fact, as of mid-2007, MySpace.com alone attracted about 1 of every 4 U.S. Internet users and had a total of over 68 million unique monthly users. Web 2.0 sites or sites using dynamic applications often with user-generated content such as Google Maps, are also integrating social tools to allow visitors to do such things as write reviews on local businesses or recommend restaurants to visiting tourists.

Industry-Leading Research
Media and Communication has developed custom websites for various industries and organizations. All of our custom website design work is developed using our industry-leading focus groups and web usage research. MC research includes information on how individuals use the web and what people are looking for when they come to a website. This data can vary significantly by industry. MC's research experts can provide you with the background intelligence you need to make wise design planning decisions.

Strategic Design Planning
Media and Communication starts your custom web design from a blank slate and consults with you about your business or organization, your online goals and your intended audience. We then begin the development process, using our years of expertise in navigation and design to create a layout and navigation that is attractive, functional and focused on your online goals.

Your Internet Technology Partner
After the initial site is developed, MC offers ongoing website development consulting. Our consulting services provide you with an "internet technology" partner who can support your new website and help the site grow and expand. MC keeps you abreast of new technologies and Internet trends as they develop and provides research-driven recommendations specific to your business or organization.

Media and Communication graphic artists often create multiple mock-ups before settling on the best, most effective web design.
