MyToons, which is currently in private beta, is an impressive new video and image-sharing site for cartoons. You can upload your own videos and artwork, and find the most viewed, top rated, most discussed and most recent media in these sections. The player is large, fast loading and Flash-based - it can also be expanded to take up much of the screen. Look out too for tagging, comments and the ability to share via email (strangely, there’s no option to embed clips in MySpace and blogs). Beyond media sharing, there’s also groups, messaging, networks of friends and profile pages. The profiles provide a choice of design templates, and you can also create you own.
