Advantages: lots of information and content
Disadvantages: a bit of a messy homepage especially initially
bbc.co.uk is the home of the British Broadcasting Corporation on the World Wide Web(Internet). I use the BBC website virtually everyday to check out the latest news and sport, especially football. From this homepage, as well as accessing news , there are also a wide range of other pages which you can access from the BBC on a range of things. There are various sections on the homepage which can be moved around. On first look the site does look quite messy and hard to get around and find what you want but once you find what you want you can move it to a more suitable place for you on the homepage. The site gives you the option to customise it so it is easier for you to use which is definitely useful as there are alot of things on the homepage. For example if you like to view sports news you can move that section to a position near the top or middle to make it easier to access. There are of course all the other sections such as Childrens, i Player, weather, radio, tv guide etc.
The BBC homepage is probably not the best it could be and is maybe a little cluttered. It does though get you to some great content and is one of the best places to go on the web for reliable news and information. As it is the BBC the site is also advert free which is definitely a good thing with the number of adverts around on the internet these days with popups as well. The licence fee is useful for a few things like this I guess.This also probably helps it to be faster to use and access. I am mainly a user of the news and sports sections which are covered very well with good insight and opinions as well. The weather is also a useful section as well as the now very popular i player.
Overall it is a highly recommended site which will get you to some great content on the internet. One of the most useful and most used sites for me and probably alot of others on the web.
Summary: decent homepage for the BBC
