You Should Try Imgur

Don’t know how to Reddit? Clueless about Tumblr? Never fear — Imgur may be the website for you!

Imgur, the simple image sharer, calls itself “home to the web’s most popular image content.” Users scroll through images, up or down vote the content, and provide comments, which can also be voted upon. Points rack up, and trophies are given based off of your level of notoriety.

For many, the learning curve on sites like Reddit, Tumblr, and even Twitter is just too steep, with a mess of hashtags and specialized lingo. It can be discouraging for new users trying the sites for the first time.

Thankfully Imgur houses the most awesome content from those sites in an easier-to-use format. You can find all the memes, GIFs, and images you can stand. Then you can feel on the forefront of the Internet, and look down on everyone who posts on Facebook the same images you saw two weeks ago on Imgur.

You can submit your own personal images or other content to the site and allow your peers to vote on its shareability. If enough people like your posts, you may even find yourself on the Front Page (Imgur’s most popular images, showcased on the homepage of the site.)

But you don’t have to be a member to browser Imgur. Get started “lurking” here.
