I really like the new website. The design is very interactive and easy to comprehend. However, the news on the home page needs to be updated.
There is soo much happening right now in the country and the world,especially with Obama's plan to invest $150 billion over the next 10 years into research and development of renewable energy sources.With Barack Obama taking office on Tuesday that news page should be full of current news and happenings!

It was required that I view the site and leave a comment in the comment section. Although the site is very interactive and the site has a great design, the information on it needs to be updated.

Abbie said...

I also had to view the website and evaluate it. I think you guys are dong an excellent job in communicating with your demographic. The layout of the website and the mediums available for viewing were apropos for your target age group.

ehammera said...

Hey! I also had to write an evaluation on your website and the thing that stood out to me were your videos of Lolo and then the Brad and Earth skits. I thought those were creative ways to give the 18-24 age group friendly eco-friendly reminders! :)

I thought your site was comprehensive and well laid out. I would also have to agree with some of the other comments that said it needs to be updated. I do think it does a good job of appealing to the younger generation however. I like the fact that there is an option to leave comments so that kids everywhere can see what their peers are saying and doing about the environment.

I like the MTVswitch website, but I think they need to work on getting their name out there. MTV definitely knows how to make an impact on its target audience once they have the audiences attention, but I had no idea about this website until I had this assignment. The website has great tools such as the carbon calculator and entertaining, short videos. I also like the graphic design and easy-to-follow layout.

I really enjoyed this website. I am writing on here as an assignment for a class but I think more college students should read the information this website offers. I really liked on the actions page how you gave a thing to change, a reason why and a quirky thing at the end. This part of the website really pointed out how there a lot of little changes that make a big difference.

Morgan said...

I had to evaluate this website for a class and i must say I really liked the ACTIONS link that showed all the tips people can do instead of what we normally do. The videos cracked me up because with some people it is so true!! I would like to see the billboards appear over in the U.S and other places as well. I think this website is a great way to get the message across youth and encourage them to get involved.

Aya said...

I must say that the new website is very attractive, the design is great and the idea is phenominal, but the way of putting the plan through wasn't really that practical.

Nabila094797 said...

The idea of the site is extraordinary for the enviromental lovers and also the design was very intriguing. However the coordination of the blogs was tiresome to maneuver with .

Ramzy said...

I also had to publish my comment regarding the site. Yes, it is a smart and excellent idea that shows MTV is just not a money-making business. I particularly liked the Carbon Calculator tool, which is an excellent effort to keep us aware of what causes environmental damage in our day-to-day lives.

marina said...

I think that the website is very original and eye attracting which holds the interest of teenagers and young adults..Good job!

rana0088 said...

This new and improvd website "MTV SWITCH" is great! It has wonderful options such as the Carbon Calculator that's a true reality check to a lot of people. Also the saving energy alternatives are very useful for daily life. Thanks for improving this website and giving our globe's youth tips on how to save the enviornment.

NightWolf said...

I think this website is what we really need to know we all should care about our planet and not to consume it to its a brilliant idea from MTV to publish a site like this one and to be so caring about our planet so thank you MTV

farah said...

its very important to respect mother nature so it can respect us in return and give us a healthy enviroment. This is why this website drew my attention and made me realize that MTV with its entertainment target is a very useful site.

nour said...

I found the MTV campaign is a very wonderful and useful campaign that try to make the life around us better more than that. And try also to change the global climate that we used to live in the last period.

Hello-

I am posting this comment as a response to your website and as a class assignment for Northwood University- MKT 240.

Your web design is awesome. I found it interesting, informative and challenging. I appreciate the fresh perspective and the world outlook on the issue of climate change. I loved the mini videos regarding conserving energy and just the overall basic challenge to attempt and conserve this gift that we have been given that is known as Earth.

Thank you to everyone who worked on this project. I am a little distressed that I was unaware of the campaign until this class assignment.

Thank you-
Sonyita

mkot said...

I enjoyed this website! I am also doing writing here as an assignment for class. I think that the information was really interesting and organized in an easy/fun way to view. The actions link was fun to look at little tips that are easy to do each day to help out! I just think with the great information and plan you guys have, you need to get your name out there more!

Yasminahmed said...

I am loving this site! The diversity, global appeal and awesome tips for everyday living are helpful and enlightening. I especially loved the Carbon Calculator (though I didn't love my score). I would definitely recommend this site to anyone who is trying to live eco-friendly.

bpearlman@everest said...

I am new to the web-site, and even though I dont know much about blogging I found this site to be interesting. I am from Buffalo New York, and I like the social movement that this blog has to offer. With all due respect to the web I will just observe for now, I dont want to express my opionion until I learn more about this direct model.

leesbl01 said...

I was required to view this MTVSwitch website and then post a message to the blog. I thorougly enjoyed the website. I thought that it was full of great information. However, it is really in need of an update.

Lauren said...

I am required for a class to leave a comment on this blog. When I first viewed mtvswitch.org, I was disappointed and bored. I think that if there were photographs of glaciers, endangered animals, or the harmful effects of global warming, the website would have been much more enticing.

I am required to comment on this blog for my class. While your website is very easy to navigate and provides a lot of suggestions to contribute to the effort, the website does not really address the issues present in the climate control crisis. Perhaps on the links page MTV could provide additional links to news articles explaining the sources of the problems.

Kelsey Goullet said...

I think this website is a great way to get the youth involved in saving the environment.

S. Campbell said...

Eh, aesthetically the site is nice, but I feel like the site could use more frequent updating. If MTV is so passionate about climate change as they say they are, then there should be news stories on the site everyday.

If MTV is so passionate about climate change as they say they are, then why aren't there news stories everyday? In my opinion, this seems like one of those failed projects that giant companies do just to say "we did it".

Chris said...

Well said, S.M. Campbell. MTV is quoted as being the worlds largest TV network, yet the blog for its largest campaign is a free website, curated by no one, updated arbitrarily every few months. I was personally expecting more but then again it doesn't matter. The website www.mtvswitch.org is a little nicer, I guess.

Terry said...

Nice post and good article ★★come to my site too and leave your coment please ★★

Achamos muito bacana a iniciativa de vocês em criar uma campanha como essa. A MTV é uma emissora muito importante, e é muito interessante usar toda essa influência para difundir um assunto que é tão falado atualmente como a preservação ambiental.
Outro ponto interessante é que a campanha foi criada em 2007 e nesse ano as pessoas nem falavam tanto no assunto, então vemos a MTV como pioneira nessa questão, por trazer um assunto tão polêmico para rede nacional e, além disso, se preocupar em difundir também na internet. É uma pena que o blog tenha parado de ser atualizado, pois apesar dos anos, a campanha ainda é muito atual.
