iLove iCarly: Website Functionality

I am completely obsessed with the teen sitcom iCarly. For those of you who are unfamiliar with what iCarly is, let me explain it to you. iCarly is an American teen sitcom that focuses on a girl named Carly Shay who creates her own web show called iCarly with her best friends. The whole idea behind their website derived from Carly and her sassy best friend who find it funny to act out at a school talent show audition. However, their tech-savvy friend Freddie, decided to record and post Carly and Sam’s audition online without telling them. Attracted to the girls’ strong chemistry and sense of humor, the online audience begins to demand for more; hence the iCarly website was born!

The entire show is actually shown from the recording studio of Carly’s bedroom. Strategically, the show enters and exits various scenes using the actually website by which Carly and Sam post all of their videos. 

However, it wasn’t until just recently that I actually decided to stop in at the iCarly website.

Upon entering the iCarly website, I was immediately captivated by the bright color scheme, lime green, hot pink, royal purple, ice blue, and yellow. In the upper right hand corner is the iCarly.com logo, which is a floating avatar.

From the homepage, you are able to access various sections of the website including iBlogs, iSnaps, iNews,
iVideo, iPlay, iSongs, iNeedHelp,
and most importantly, Send us Stuff.

Just as shown during her 30-minute show, you are can maneuver the site and watch videos uploaded by Carly and Sam. My favorite section happens to be the iVideo section. Carly and Sam are always uploading videos surrounding typical issues of adolescence in particular. They also have funny vlogs that feature talent contests, recipes, random dancing, and problem solving.

If there ever comes a time when you want to post a reaction video, give your humble suggestion or just simply say hello to Carly, Sam and Freddie, there’s a place for that as well.

Overall, I consider the site to be AMAZING, serving as both a source of entertainment and interactivity.

The iCarly website continues to be successful not only because of her show which airs on Nickelodeon, but also because they have made it easy for viewers and receivers to interact with the users and sender, being the iCarly cast.

If you’re ever browsing the internet and you’re looking for something fun to do, I would definitely recommend that you stop in at this website, no matter what your age is. Look at me, I’m 21 years old! My inner child just keeps calling me!!

If I could come up with one recommendation for this website it would be to keep up the good work! I believe they have successfully created a two-way street between the producers and the viewers. They continuously post entertaining content and leave lots of space for feedback.

iLove iCarly!
