There are so many great people here that I love to listen to. I used to be here all the time and now it is so hard to find the time. Been trying to get back into singing more this past year... My voice disappeared so I'm working on getting it back and now I'll be working harder on listening more! Guess that's why God gave us one mouth and two ears! Listen more and more! Thank you for the great article!

As for me, if i listen I comment, i will be honest, and like the majority i will find something positive to say ALWAYS.

Being partiall deaf (see my profile) i am not in any position to throw stones.
What many dont realise is how much work I put into my songs, i love to sing, but was horrible.

But my dream was to sing well. So first had to take singing lessons with the help of a speech pathologist, then practice, practice, practice.

FF to 2011 when i joined SS: to sing a song i listen to it about a dozen times, then i will sing it, and my wife helps guide me through the parts i cant hear where my voice should be, inflections, nuances, ques, etc. We go through it until get it down, along with timing. Then i practice it over and over. Then record, have wife review, redo if needed. Then finally record and post.
I love music , and a bit of a ham, i try to make it fun unless its a sad song. I get alot of comments on my videos.

I admit, i love getting comments, they encourage me. Sometimes i know they're just being nice. I often wish people would leave constructive criticism so i could contine to improve.
It does make me sad when i work super hard on a song, and feel really good about it, then wife listens and is impressed, post it and it just sits there 0 comments 0 views:-(

not trying to write a book here but,
i have to tip my hat to SS, and the very first friend i met on here. MysticalEyes, strange but as my confidence increased it had a ripple effect.
I surprised my friends getting up at public karaoke, even more surprised i sounded really good.
I was asked to sing at the county fair, and several Italian weddings. Not bad for someone doctor said would never sing, and told me to find a new dream.
Every three years i get new hearing aids, and each time technology improves, and i can hear a bit better. some things i will never hear, but it is what it is. I sing for the joy it brings me, or sometimes to file away feelings.
Best comment i ever got was :
"you dont sound like a deaf person, if i hadn't read your profile i would have never known"

Great article!! I managed to completely unintentionally upset a member VERY early on here, simply by not following them back - I had no idea they had even followed me at all! It's so easy to offend sometimes - I try to be more aware of the various ways we use SS these days, but we are DEFINITELY all here for different reasons, at at very different times! Some fab advice here!

I love Snap, been a member for over a decade & it's Community feel has always been somewhat special. That said, I'm amazed if I get 20 views if I don't post a link elsewhere.

However, I have also longed for years for the site to provide a method for members to monetise their efforts. Without this, Snap has stood still while content creation sites such as Youtube have grown to a size where they are a global influencer.

Something like referral commission for signing up new Gold members would work if you don't want to go down the advertising clicks route whilst growing both the membership for the company as well as audiences for creators.

Sure, its a karaoke site and few on here are dreaming of a music career but for those that are, exposure is key. Money follows views and vice versa; & Snap is not a competitor in the Creator market in it's current format.

Flash MUST go too; I find many people on the internet, rightly or wrongly, will not click a Singsnap link for fear of viruses.

100% when ppl come to my songs I hope they are nothing but honest about how I sing because I know if I am good on my songs lol. Like literally I will sing a song listen to it and someone will call it amazing and I will be like you sure cause imo im the one that sing that and listening to myself right now I rushed through the song absolutely terrible on that. I am one of those singers that like critique I like the truth about how I sing because then I find a way to take that critique and use it to grow my voice.

I mean you go to someones song and say OMG what was that that was actually horrible to my ears I have no clue how I sat here and listened to this the whole time.. Thats mean critique. Should never be done thats just called being rude.

But now going to someones song lets say its a contest entry and after listening to the song you can say hey there took a listen to your song and this song is just imo not for your voice. It is too high of a song dont try to strain your voice to hit high notes. If you are not hitting high notes with ease as if you are talking then you are singing wrong. Use less breath remember those high notes dont require alot of breath but a small amount. Sing songs that fit your voice. I feel like a better song should be picked for you or you should pick a better song good luck.

Now see ^^^ that up there is what you call good critique because yes you are telling someone you did not enjoy their sing but at the same time you are telling them advice on how to grow their voice better and I tell ya what no matter what level of a singer from joe to pro if a person gives advice of what they liked/did not like about your song any level of singer should take that critique and grow from it.

I can relate to what you are saying, and for those of us on SS who are here because we want to improve singing, that remark about a song being wrong for the singer MIGHT get by on the niceness scale. But, the majority of people here just love to sing or are here to help with medical issues (respiratory or memory conditions). They don't want to make it better or work to "get it perfect". If I don't enjoy a song that I hear, I don't wax poetic about how wonderful they did, but I won't tell them any kind of criticism, constructive or not. I don't know why there are there, only that they did a song that they hope someone will hear and enjoy.

Your comments about what song to sing, and the range, is fine for a private message IF you know that person wants help. For me, I'd love to hear ideas about songs the listener might think fits me or suggestions about phrasing, dynamics, etc. Then it's my choice to agree or just ignore the advice. But saying it publically isn't the best way to do it, in my opinion.

Just out of curiosity, if you don't like the way you sang a song, why do you post it to public? Why not just do it again until you get it the way you want it?

Hi there thank you for your post. To answer your question you asked at the end. The way I always did it was if I sing the song and I listened to it and did not like how it sounded I never did post it public. Specially if it was a contest or a theme I would always make sure I was fully satisfied with my songs before posting them publicly.

Thanks for the answer! I've heard people having very different ways to do it here. I'm always curious how others do it.

How correct you are.
People get addicted to the artificial confirmation.
They don't have to actually do anything or even leave their homes to get people telling them how awesome they are as long as they trade back the same artificial confirmation.
It has the same mental and emotional affect on people as an addictive drug.
Similar to the like button on Facebook.

The singing and songs don't even matter on here for the most part.
Most go unlistened to.
They just serve as an excuse to comment farm and tell nice sounding lies to one another.

If SS ever made it where snappers had to actually listen to at least half of a song before it could be loved or commented on SS would turn in to a deserted wasteland of a website.
