I was going to do a big write-up about the new Just For Laughs website which as gone all YouTubey and MySpacey, but it turns out the site did it for me:
One thing the site does need to fix up is how they deal with French and English. The site tries to incorporate both into one interface which kind of works but when you embed a video (like I’ve done above) you sometimes get French text rather than English. Oh yeah, and kill the audio mouseovers on the main nav bar for the site — very irritating.
I’d be interested in thoughts on the site both from the IA (Information Architecture) and Social Media geeks out there. A bold attempt by a Canadian company to stake a claim on the emerging video sharing & social media space.
