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.

Ok. I can't really say enough about Yelp being an internet bully especially when it comes to smaller businesses. I understand that you have to keep a site moving by having advertisements and what not. But when it comes to small business owners wanting control over their own yelp page and web pr...

Such a fantastic podcast!
Duncan has a knack for narrative history, taking all the disparate stories and facts and weaving it all together into a story that's fun and engaging.
It's also very well researched.
Would highly recommend to anyone with an interest in history.

I think the site looks dull now. I hope it evolves into more modern design. And also consider user experience.

I heartily agree with the reviews on this podcast series left so far by other listeners. I've not yet listened to Mike Duncan's History of Rome podcast (though I'm now inspired to do so), but the History of Byzantium podcast is a tour de force from Robin. He has done a sterling and balanced job...

I have found the History of English podcast absolutely riveting; in fact, I 'binged- listened' my way through the first 100 or so episodes, and am very relieved that there are clearly many more to come :-). History via etymology - a great concept, well-delivered by Kevin. Highly recommended.
