The navigation tabs on the top the following tabs should be created: home, explore, help. For the explore tab, use the same rounded tab shapes as it is currently formed in. Design the explore tab so that when clicked on, the categories of: profiles, photos, videos, blogs, news, forums, groups, pet services will appear in a drop-down box.
The aforementioned categories should be included in the main page itself with a viewer conveying visually to the users that these functionalities exist.
Sections of the homepage should be used as a snapshot of what happening throughout the site, best of and featured blogs, photos, videos, etc. There should not be an overload of information, photos should be large enough to see, videos should be coherent from photos, blogs should be positioned to attract the eye (which should include the user image), and each section should either work compartmentalized on the page in a very clean and cohesive manner or share a dynamic common space where a photo or video is enlarged in a dynamic portion of the page.

Another added element is creating a marketing section for contests should be mocked up as well. (i would limit it to 2 banners type mockups and 2 lines max of text describing each)
