..The latest things to keep me occupied online.
Facebook is probably something most of you already know about (and if so, why have you not invited me into your network *shakes head in disgust*) it’s a social network site but it certainly beats faceparty/ facepic/ lookitsme and the like hands down.
It has the option to create photo albums, leave ‘notes’ (very twitter like) and you can leave comments (like myspace but without the bugs and viruses) it’s a very friendly piece of kit and me likee muchly, I’ve also found several people on there that I lost contact with a while back through the groups option. Yup, if you’re not on facebook you’re wasting your time *grin*
Now, the really fun one.. SingSnap. It’s currently in beta testing but I have 10 invites going spare, any karaoke lovers in da howse? just leave a note in the comments and i’ll email you one. It’s thanks to Kevvybabes i know about this (and facebook for re-uniting me with him) basically it’s a site for karaoke lovers, you can choose a song from the virtual book (and it’s a biggie) if you have webcam set up you can record visual as well as audio but it doesn’t matter if you don’t, you then get to choose whether to save it as a public or a private recording and away you go.
Ok, so it’s not as good as actually going to a karaoke nor is it brilliant for showcasing your singing talents, it is a fun piece of software though and since it’s all online you don’t need anything beyond a mic and speakers, it also has it’s own thriving community on the messageboards and in the chatrooms, and if you happen to have a few buddies signed up and recording you can do duets and harmonised tracks – without even being in the same country never mind the same room.. For something this good in beta I’m interested to see how well it stands up when it goes fully live.
Just one piece of advice, unless they’re there to join in, don’t try recording with someone else in the flat.. Git. 😉
