Ever want to share a personal video clip, but just with a few people? Afraid of putting it up on youtube? Want to be able to use the same site for sharing pictures, videos, and blog posts?
Ok, that intro sounds like a bad late night paid commercial, but Vox is a neat little blogging site that can handle all the above as well as allowing you to setup friends and family groups so your private moments stay private. It’s a little awkward setting up friends at first, but definitely worth it when you’re able to easily share the things you want with the people you want. I’ve been using flickr for sharing pictures and it’s pretty easy to think of Vox as flickr for videos, with blogging thrown in for fun. At least that’s primarily how I’ve been using it.
I mentioned that adding people as a friend or as family is a bit difficult. Basically what you have to do is have them sign up, then find their page, click on their profile link, and then from their profile you can add them as a friend or family or both. Not the most intuitive process, and it’s actually kept me from getting a couple of the less tech savvy family members setup.
