Reddit calls itself “the front page of the internet,” and that is exactly what it is. Just as many people used to read the newspaper while eating breakfast, one to two million internet users read Reddit each each morning to get their daily dose of current events. The site is a community message board driven by user-generated content.

Reddit content comes entirely from the public, with registered users uploading videos, links, stories, images, and other media so that other users—known as Redditors—can comment on them. Think of Reddit as a virtual bulletin board where people from all over the world chime in on everything from news stories to funny pictures.

If you're old enough, you might remember "Cracked," the monthly humor magazine that launched in 1958. While the magazine is no longer printed, the humor site Cracked is very much alive and well—delivering content with the same zany sense of humor that made the magazine famous. Cracked.com has over two million fans on Facebook and is read by over five million people each month.

The site features a daily mix of articles, videos, comics, and blogs. The articles are generally in list form, and the subject matter is typically humorous but also intended to teach readers something new and unexpected. This is the site to visit when you’ve got some time to kill and you want to learn something new through engaging, funny prose. From topical subjects like 5 Things They Don’t Want You to Know About the Olympics to relationship and sex advice like 5 Things Girls Don’t Seem to Understand about Nice Guys, this website truly covers it all.
