RihannaDaily is Rihanna's official fan site.
~~~SITE LAYOUT AND FEATURES~~~
The site has recently had a revamp, and against a mysterious black background comes a very complex and intricate front page, with boxes here and there. The site banner is pretty clunky with lots of information crammed in; this is reciprocated in many parts of the site. Text is perhaps too small in many areas.
The main posts with all the latest news is centred right, and has a reasonable area and space. Here, it is extremely dynamic and almost always accompanied by a colourful Rihanna image. The updates are also very regular, and spans from a new video release, a Rihanna interview, to what other celebs say about her! Whilst not ALL the information is interesting, a majority of it is, and the site does a good job of keeping the posts focussed and to the point. In this way, this fan site is the ultimate source for Rihanna fans and information!
The tabs under the banner boast a large variety of media, such as Music, photo gallery and also link to their Twitter page, their Rihanna style page, and their forum; all of which have comprehensive information and posts.
The side bar contains very useful information, such as tour dates, events, polls, and also their twitter feed. The side bar spans around 3-5 posts and is perhaps too long, making it a distraction when you are reading the main posts.
What's not so useful is their affiliate box. It should really be put at the bottom or to the corner... instead of near the top.
The site is very interactive with the polls, forums and also comments option. Obviously, anyone stumbling onto this website would be a Rihanna fan or like her music, so members of this site have created some form of unity, and they often call themselves a "family". They also call themselves Rihanna STANS (Stalker-fans).
However, despite their family appearance, an infiltration of anyone criticising Rihanna in anyway will lead to some very UN-family like actions. These stans are extremely defensive, and opposed to a respected discussion, there can be some very hostile language thrown about!
This is perhaps the sites only downfall. They need to learn to respect other people's opinions, even if it doesn't match their own. This of course is reciprocated by those going on the site. Don't go on just to hate on Rihanna. Offer criticism, but not insult.
For ultimate Rihanna news, this is the site for you. News is updated very regularly to the extent of news regarding other celebs talking about Rihanna. For a comprehensive news site, go to Rihannadaily! However, the site is slightly cluttered, and has a few minor issues regarding the layout; along with some over the top "stans", make this site less enjoyable than its full potential.
Summary: Good for news
