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.

The History of English Podcast

by Simon Wheeler

As an Englishman I find the content not just incredibly interesting but also very fulfilling as I learn the historical origins of the words, grammar and syntax that I use - almost without thinking - every day. It's given me a real insight into my own culture and the way that I communicate with ot...

I also bought from the website the Beowulf audiobook, which was terrific, and my husband boug...

Very much enjoy The History of Byzantium podcast and website. I like the maps on the site and the ability to buy special episodes from the site.

I wish there was an easier way to get to specific episodes, or at least specific maps. Still, the site is so much better than many simil...

too many spam sites and broken links displayed, they need to clean up the search results other than traffic-related sites displayed on the first page. how about they request additional info at the search text entry.
