Imgur is an online image hosting service founded by Alan Schaaf in 2009 in Athens, Ohio. Imgur describes itself as "the home to the web's most popular image content, curated in real time by a dedicated community through commenting, voting and sharing." It offers free image hosting to millions of users a day, and a comment-based social community. The company supports itself with revenue generated from ad sales, Pro accounts, commercial hosting and merchandise.

On October 22, 2012, Imgur released a user-submitted gallery, which allows users to submit directly to the Imgur gallery for public view, comments and votes.

On June 26, 2013, Imgur released its first content creation tool, the Imgur Meme Generator, which offers simple image macro creation as well as a public gallery of popular meme templates.

Ok, so I get imgur is a great way for people to share and post and comment, but there are other sites that just do it better. Imgur has never been iphone friendly as far as I'm aware. Loading it also takes more time, and the layout makes viewing it ... not so pleasant. I think imgur is a more image based meme site, as opposed to tumblr which could be a journaling site AND image based meme site. And if imgur's main purpose is more for image sharing/viewing why wouldn't the layout be more clear?

If you want to share one image, it is extremely user-friendly. You don't even need to be a member of the site. This makes it a great source for people who want to limit how many things they sign up for.

However, managing albums is non-intuitive, and frustrating. you really have to nail it on the first try, or editing an album becomes strangely difficult.

Top rated content is shared on the front page, but it gets there from community voting, and the experience of perusing these is ultimately disappointing due to the limited variety and low "hit rate" of excellent content.

Additionally, the looks are slick, and staff is visible.

Strange decision to use Comic Sans as the font for the titles of the website headings.

I could not find a way to navigate away from the homepage to any deeper links with more information. One would expect that the left skyscraper section would be hotlinked to more examples.

A heavily biased so-called "news" resource - HuffPo is hypocritical in nearly every possible aspect.

It claims to be strongly for diversity, and yet it practices no diversity of thought whatso...

Once one of my favorite sites to navigate, learn useless trivia, and waste hours on - Cracked has gradually descended into clickbait, heavy politicized liberal slam pieces, and generally has grown more and more akin to Buzzfeed in recent years.
